Indianapolis Airport parking
Indianapolis Airport’s parking lots are as expansive as its terminal building, with over 10,000 spaces from which to choose. There is, however, no existing option to pre-book parking.
IND’s five-floor, 2,000-space Terminal Garage facility offers a wealth of short-term options, including a pick-up and drop-off area, electric car charging facilities and priority parking bays that can range from half-hourly to daily rates.
Given that it is connected to the terminal building by a fully covered and temperature-controlled moving walkway, the Terminal Garage allows passengers to get from their car to their gate in minutes, which is particularly useful if you’re flying on business.
The Terminal Garage is a multi-story facility with a height restriction of 6.8 feet (2.1 meters) in operation throughout, so it’s a good idea to double-check the height of your vehicle before setting off.
Park and Walk
IND’s open-air Park and Walk facility is ideal for passengers who want to enjoy the convenience of parking close to the terminal while also saving a bit of spending money for the trip ahead. Developed as part of Indianapolis Airport’s research into efficiency and sustainability, the Park and Walk lot is just an eight-minute walk from the terminal along well-lit and signed paths. To further increase affordability, this lot does not have a shuttle service, so it is perhaps best-suited to those who are away for a few days and traveling light, whether that’s in terms of luggage, budget or both.
IND’s most affordable option and an ideal choice for those traveling with family or heavy bags is the 8,000-capacity Economy Lot, where a fleet of complimentary shuttle buses make the 10-minute trip between the lot and the terminal entrance every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day.
As part of the security features of parking in the Economy Lot at IND, your car is assigned a barcode upon entry that, when scanned upon your return, will quickly and accurately locate your vehicle so you don’t have to worry about forgetting where you left it.
One whole floor of the Terminal Garage is reserved for IND’s valet parking, which, above having staff park for you, includes car wash, polishing and detailing services, as well as help with your luggage and the option to have your car ready and waiting for you when you return.
Cell Phone Lot
If you’ve arrived early to pick someone up, Indianapolis Airport’s Cell Phone Lot provides completely free parking while you wait to hear from your passengers. Once they’ve told you they’re ready to go, it's just a five-minute drive to the terminal to collect them.
