BACKGROUND

Dallas Love Field Airport (the Airport) has maintained two garages for many years as passenger levels remained stable during the Wright Amendment Restrictions. There were approximately 1,110 daily spaces and all airport employees were allowed parking in Garage B for their shifts.

In 2014 with the expiration of those flight restrictions, passenger volumes increased dramatically, resulting in scarcity of parking availability. So much so that during Thanksgiving of 2014, the Airport and offsite lots were completely full with no spaces available.

In early 2015, the City moved the Airport employees to the former garage on Lemmon Avenue, opened the Love Connection remote lot for discounted public parking, and began constructing the new garage (Garage C). When Garage C opened in 2018, employees moved to Love Connection and prices were reduced in all garages to stimulate customer usage. In addition, discounted rates were implemented to compete with the off airport lots. The parking overview provides a visual of spaces and rates, seen below:
