A new short-term parking garage at Nashville International Airport opens Thursday, just in time for holiday travelers.

The $115 million parking and transportation center, which features 2,200 spaces throughout its six levels, is new designated location for convenient garage parking and ground transportation.

You can find the garage near the existing short term parking garage, which will soon close for demolition to make way for a larger terminal parking.

The new garage is a major component of BNA Vision, the airport’s dynamic growth and expansion plan, and was completed $7 million under budget at a final cost of $115 million.

Here's what you'll find at the garage

The new, six-level garage features a variety of modern conveniences including: 
  • Parking space guidance system
  • Electric vehicle charging stations
  • Tire inflation station
  • Vehicle locator kiosks
  • Pay-on-foot kiosks
  • Flight information displays
  • Covered walkway to the terminal
  • Ground-level pick-up by commercial vehicles including WeGo Public Transit buses, hotel shuttles, charter buses, limousines, taxis and ride app vehicles

What other projects will be underway at the airport?

Other BNA Vision projects currently underway include the terminal apron and taxi lane expansion project, which will be completed in two phases with the first finished in summer 2019.

Concourse D and terminal wings expansion will open in summer 2020, followed by a new terminal parking garage, airport administrative building and pedestrian plaza set to open fall 2020.
