Aug 12, 2019 Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport : The world’s busiest airport moved off-airport parking shuttle pick-ups at the domestic terminal to the Terminal North lower level on Monday Aug. 12. Previously, 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. Monday, airport officials advised 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. JOHN SPINK/JSPINK@AJC.COM

Atlanta airport relocates off-airport parking shuttle pick-ups

The world’s busiest airport has moved off-airport parking shuttle pick-ups at the domestic terminal to the Terminal North lower level. The move makes way for construction.

Those shuttles used to line up in designated spaces along an aisle of the ground transportation center outside the airport’s west exit door. Major construction projects planned for that area include an InterContinental Hotel to be built next to the airport’s west exit.

The new off-airport parking shuttle location will be in place for the next two years or so, according to airport officials. Arriving passengers who need to catch shuttles to off-airport parking should now take Terminal North escalators down to the lower level, exit through door LN1 and turn left. Signs and customer service representatives in bright green jackets are there to help.

There was still some confusion Monday morning as some passengers headed to the old pick-up area. At the new pick-up area, parking shuttles line up along the curb instead of waiting at designated spots for each company. Passengers can check in at a podium for information.

There is no change for shuttle drop-offs, which will continue to be at the outer curb on the upper level of Terminal North. Family and friends picking up travelers can still go to the Terminal North lower level for less-congested curbside pickup along the main lower level curb beyond the initial shuttle pickup zone.

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