Seattle-Tacoma Airport parking
Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has a single on-site parking garage with 13,000 spaces; North America's largest parking structure under one roof. The garage is fully equipped for complimentary electric vehicle charging and offers parking spaces through a range of packages.
Premium parking spaces
‘Terminal Direct’ is a premium parking service at SeaTac, reserving the entire fourth floor of the garage for short- and long-term parking under the package. The fourth floor connects directly into the main terminal building, guaranteeing passengers the shortest possible route from car to airplane.
Electric vehicle charging spaces, of which there are 12 in total, are available on the fourth floor for Terminal Direct customers.
General parking spaces
Covering both short-term and long-term parking options, general parking utilizes all other floors of the main parking garage. Immediately next to the terminal, all spaces are convenient and prices are tiered by hourly, daily, weekly and monthly rates.
Extended stays of more than 30 days do have to be specially arranged with SeaTac Airport so they know in advance that your car will be parked there for longer than a month.
Electric vehicle charging spaces (36) are found on the fifth floor and the rates are the same as for the rest of general parking.
Other vehicles and parking lots
Motorcycles can park in the same main garage with the same choice of general or Terminal Direct parking.
Vehicles taller than 6.8 feet (2.07 meters) have to go to a separate lot accessed by entering the airport from South 182nd St off of Highway 99. Once on the airport property, stay to the left-hand lane and follow the signs to the lot, which is within walking distance of the terminal.
A 200-space cell phone lot with free WiFi allows free parking for up to 20 minutes to allow you to wait for the call to go to the pick-up area outside arrivals. The lot is just a few seconds’ walk from the main terminal area.
Off-site valet and park-and-ride services
In addition to the main parking garage, there are also numerous off-site lots providing ‘park and ride’ services. Mostly just a few minutes from SeaTac Airport, these lots offer short- and long-term parking and a free shuttle bus service to and from the terminals.
Most of these lots can also be used with a valet service; you drive to the terminal where a valet will take your vehicle, park it off-site and have it waiting for you at arrivals when you get back to remove all hassle.
