Hartsfield-Jackson to move off-airport parking shuttle pick-ups to North lower level

If you park at off-airport lots at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, be aware there’s a change in store.

The world’s busiest airport plans to move off-airport parking shuttle pick-ups at the domestic terminal to the Terminal North lower level effective Monday Aug. 12.

Today, those shuttles line up in designated spaces along an aisle of the ground transportation center outside the airport’s west exit door.

But there are major construction projects planned in that area, include an extension of the Plane Train tunnel and improvements to the West curb area. Also long envisioned is an InterContinental Hotel to be built next to the airport’s west exit. 

Starting Monday, airport officials advise passengers taking off-airport parking shuttles to go to Terminal North escalators down to the lower level and exit through door LN1.

Airport officials say signs and customer service representatives in bright green jackets will direct passengers.

There will be no change for shuttle drop-offs, which will continue to be at the outer curb on the upper level of Terminal North.

Regional shared-ride shuttle pick-ups will also be relocated effective Monday Aug. 12. The regional shared-ride shuttle pick-up area will take the place of the off-airport parking shuttles, behind the hotel shuttle aisle.

Airport officials plan to later announce more changes for shuttle locations this fall.
