Fort Lauderdale International Airport Transportation & Parking
Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International (FLL) Airport has a series of parking and transportation options.
The garage complex has over 12,000 parking spaces for daily use. It's 20 minutes for $1 with a maximum of $36.00 daily. Long term parking is available through the airport's Economy Parking. There's a terminal pick-up and drop-off service at each terminal. They are located outside of Baggage Claim on the lower level crosswalk. There are shuttle stop signs spread liberally directing you to these spots. The shuttles run 24 hours a day every 15 minutes.
FLL offers special accommodations for individuals with upper body mobility limitations. ADA Parking Access allows parking for patrons that can't pull a ticket. Disabled parking spaces are located conveniently throughout all the parking facilities. Wheelchair access is located on levels 1 and 4 at the west end of the garage complex. Otherwise, use the elevator to reach the shuttle, all of which are wheelchair equipped.
Taxi cabs are available around the clock if you choose not to have a cheap FLL car rental. Each terminal has a Transportation Podium at the lower level, curbside. As required by Florida law, the fares are posted at the podium. The fares are zone based as opposed to distance. These fares apply to taxi cabs, shared rides and luxury Sedans. To expedite travel circumstances and prevent prolonged waits, shared rides are encouraged. Drivers are allowed to accept up to five passengers per trip, with each person responsible for the stated fare.
