Once successful, Peach Pass payment will be added to a new park-and-ride lot then implemented throughout the airport, Selden told the Atlanta City Council transportation committee Wednesday.
It’s similar to systems that have long been used at some other airports around the country.
The airport is seeking city council approval to strike a two-year agreement with the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) for Peach Pass customers to pay for airport parking using their Peach Pass transponder.
Cars’ license plates will read upon entering a parking deck.
Parking fees will be charged to the customer’s credit card on file with SRTA, separate from tolls, according to the agreement.
It also stipulates that Peach Pass users will not be charged rates higher than those paid by other customers.
It’s yet to be seen how much parking will cost at the new ATL West deck. Hartsfield-Jackson slashed many parking rates in half when demand plummeted due to COVID-19. The airport said it is “reviewing and adjusting the rates” during the recovery period.
