Albany Airport Parking Options
The first major decision every traveler using Albany International Airport (ALB) must make is where to park their vehicle at the airport while they’re gone. It’s not as clear-cut as you might think.
For starters, there’s the choice between an on-site public parking lot, and an off-site private lot. This isn’t a decision you want to rush to make.
When travelers using ALB choose to forgo the conveniences of a private lot such as Albany Park Ride & Fly and use public parking instead, there are several options available. They include:
• Valet Parking
This option is now available in the Long-Term lot, located behind the Parking Garage. You leave your vehicle with the valet and tell them the date and time you will return to the airport. The current fee is $9 per day.
• Short-Term Parking
The short-term lot is located directly across from the terminal, on the first level of the parking garage, as well as a marked area behind the parking garage. This parking option provides 30 minutes of free parking for visitors arriving for flights or dropping off or greeting passengers. Short-term parking costs $24 per day after the first 30 minutes.
• Long-Term Parking
The long-term lot is located behind the parking garage, and there are two additional long-term lots at the east and west ends of the terminal. (Only credit cards and EZ-Pass Plus are accepted at the east and west lots.) The fee for long-term parking is $9 per day.
• Economy E-Lot
This parking option, accessible directly from Albany-Shaker Road, offers $6 per-day parking with a complimentary shuttle to and from the terminal, available 24 hours per day. The lot also offers an entrance and exit to and from Exit 5 on I-87 (the Adirondack Northway) on Watervliet-Shaker Road. The rear exit is automated, and only accepts credit cards or EZ-Pass Plus.
• Disabled Parking
Disabled travelers are entitled to a lowered rate of $6 per day in the short-term lot, permit required. When exiting the toll plaza, patrons use the handicapped lane in order to receive the discounted rate.
