HARRISON, N.Y. – A long-term parking facility recently opened in Harrison offering shuttle service to the Westchester County Airport.
The parking center is less than a half a mile from the main passenger terminal and offers a shuttle in a specially-equipped Mercedes Benz van. The lot, which holds 250 to 300 cars, costs $15 a day for stays of three days or more.
“It’s the perfect option for travelers who will be away for a few days or more, whether they’re flying for business or pleasure,” Joseph Apicella of Westchester Airport Associates and Executive Vice President of Cappelli Enterprises, said in a statement. “In just two minutes, you’ll be at the terminal without worrying about your car or having to carry your luggage.”
The new long-term lot will be managed by Park Plus Airport Parking, which also runs airport parking and shuttle services at J.F.K. and Newark Liberty International airports as well as airport shuttle services facilities throughout the metropolitan area.
“Our company takes pride in our reputation for customer satisfaction and this new service at Westchester is an exciting new option for travelers,” said Larry Toto, a co-owner of Park Plus. “Making parking easy and convenient is a good way to take the stress out of catching a flight. We’re excited to bring this new approach to long-term parking at Westchester County Airport.”
Apicella said people traveling from Westchester County Airport for three or more days had to find alternative ways to get to the airport, or were forced to park miles away.
“This solves that problem and at a highly affordable price,” Apicella said.
The new long-term lot is a re-purposing of the current overflow lot, where people have been parking when the main garage was full. “The long-term lot is an important first step toward transforming the parking infrastructure at the airport into one of the safest and most convenient parking systems in the country,” Apicella said.
Travelers can find the lot by going to the main airport, 240 Airport Road. Signs for the new lot will be up soon, officials said.
