Cell Phone Lot

Not parking to pick up a passenger? One of GNV's green initiatives is to provide a cell phone lot so drivers do not continue to expend gas by circling the Terminal Loop. However, drivers must remain with the vehicle or the car will be ticketed and/or towed. Click here to see the map and locate the free lot. Passengers can contact the driver via cell phone when they get to the curb.

New Automated Pay Parking

Gainesville Regional Airport is transitioning to a new, automated pay parking system and new ticketing technology. The change is part of more than $800,000 of customer service upgrades required to make exiting the parking lot more efficient for our passengers.

As in the past, passengers arriving at either short or long term parking will approach the entrance gate arm but now have two options. He or she can press the Ticket button on the machine to retrieve a parking ticket and open the gate. The second option is to insert a credit or debit card to open the gate. The card will not be charged until the passenger uses the same card at the exit gate upon departure.

A new option is also available when paying for parking at the return of the trip. Passengers who wish to pay inside at a pre-pay kiosk while they await checked baggage will want to take their ticket with them instead of leaving it in the vehicle.

In an effort to help our passengers with a smooth transition, we have put together this list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Will it cost more to park?
No, GNV is leaving parking rates unchanged as they have been for several years.

What hours will the automated lanes be open?
The automated lanes will be open 24/7, 365 days a year. Passengers will be able to use a help button at the gate to call for assistance. An attendant will acknowledge the call on the intercom and, if needed, respond to the vehicle shortly.

How do I get a disabled/handicap rate for long term?

GNV will no longer be able to change short term parking tickets to the long term rate. Passengers will need to utilize the disabled/handicap parking in long term to get the long term rate.

What if I lose my ticket?

In the event of a lost ticket, passengers will have to press the Help button under the flap. An attendant will be there shortly to determine your length of stay utilizing the records kept by security staff. Please expect a delay if you have lost your ticket.
