Parking Questions:

How does it work?

When you arrive at DLH, you will receive a ticket when you enter the parking lot. Make sure that you hold onto that ticket throughout your parking stay. Scan that ticket when you exit the parking lot, the system will calculate what you owe and you will pay with a credit or debit card upon your exit.

Do I need to reserve in advance?

No reservations are needed at DLH! You will pay for your parking when you exit.

How much does it cost?

The cost of parking is calculated based on the length of stay. The rates are listed above. The cost also depends on whether you park in the Surface or Ramp lots.

How do I pay?

Upon exiting the parking lot, payment will be made by credit or debit card. No pre-payment or reservations are required.

Where is it located?

As you pull up to the DLH Terminal on Grinden Drive, follow signs for Parking. The parking lot will be on your left, and the terminal on your right.

Why is the ramp more expensive?

Most ramp levels (except the top floor) are covered and offer limited weather protection. If you check in online and have no checked baggage, you can use the Skywalk to access the terminal directly on the 2nd floor where the gates are located. (Check-in counters and baggage checking is on the 1st floor).
