Buffalo Airport offers a variety of parking options for all travelers. These range from covered parking garages close to the terminal, to budget options located off-site. Here is a summary of the official parking options available at BUF airport:
The two most convenient options are the Reserved Covered Parking and Daily/Hourly Garage. If you want your car to be protected from the elements, this the only on-site parking garage where it’s possible and the closest to the terminal. Located on Level 1 you are right in front of the terminal building so there’s no need for shuttle buses. When looking for the parking lot just follow the red signs. To guarantee your parking space you can opt for Reserved Covered Parking, where you book in advance and pay when you leave.
There is also the Preferred Parking Lot, which provides outdoor parking for shorter trips. You can walk the short distance to the terminal or hop on one of the free shuttle services that runs 24 hours a day, seven days week. To locate the parking lot follow the green signs.
The Long-Term Parking Lot and the Economy Parking Lot both offer long-term parking for visitors to Buffalo Airport. The Long Term Parking Lot is on-site next to the terminal building with a 24 hour shuttle service operating daily. An alternative, more economic long-term solution, is the Economy Parking Lot, located off-site just a few minutes ride on the free shuttle bus. Follow the orange signs for the Long Term Parking Lot and the blue signs to reach the Economy Parking Lot.
