Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority

Dulles International Airport

Economy Parking Lot

The Economy parking lot, located on airport property near the Dulles Access Road and Route 28 airport exits, offers more than 12,000 parking spaces just minutes by shuttle from the terminal. Shuttle service to and from the terminal is provided 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and scheduled at 10 minute intervals to pick up and drop off at the more than 25 bus shelters located throughout the lot. Customers returning from their trip board the Economy shuttle buses on the ground transportation level of the roadway at the terminal.

There is no minimum or maximum length of stay for the Economy Lot. Vehicles left in the Economy Lot longer than 45 days must be registered with the parking office to avoid being identified as ‘abandoned’ and removed from the premises at the owner’s expense.

The Economy Lot is divided into sections by color: Blue, Green, Gold, and Purple. Gold and Purple sections are used as overflow during peak seasons.

Customers are encouraged to take their parking tickets with them and use the Pay-n-Go machines located in the terminals to pre-pay parking before returning to the lot. Other payment options include major credit cards and cash.
