Just in time for summer, Detroit Metro Airport (DTW) is dropping the price for long-term parking in the airport’s Big Blue Deck to just $10 per day starting today.

“Customers have been asking for more convenient, on-airport, economy parking, and we’ve been listening,” said Wayne County Airport Authority CEO Lester Robinson. “As we mark the official start of summer and one of our busiest travel seasons, the Airport Authority is eager to welcome travelers into the only parking facility just steps from the North Terminal—and the closest economy parking option to the McNamara Terminal.”

Located on the north end of Detroit Metro Airport close to the airport entrance off I-94 at Merriman Road, DTW’s Big Blue Deck is directly connected to the North Terminal by an enclosed, pedestrian walkway on Level 4. Free shuttle service is also available round-the-clock from the Big Blue Deck to and from McNamara Terminal.

In addition to a lower long-term rate, customers parking in DTW’s Big Blue Deck benefit from enhancements to the facility made as part of the North Terminal Redevelopment Project, including new moving walkways that now run the entire length of the deck on Level 4. The Big Blue Deck also features a central bank of escalators, adjacent to the North Terminal ground transportation center, adding an easy alternative to elevators for moving between the structure’s four main levels.

The Big Blue Deck and McNamara terminal garages provide the only customer parking within walking distance of DTW’s North and McNamara Terminals, respectively. The two decks also feature the only option for covered parking at or near the airport.

Also effective today, the price for economy, long-term parking at DTW’s surface Yellow Lot will drop by $1 to $10 per day. Free shuttles connect the Yellow Lot to both airport terminals.

Parking rates for short-term parking at both terminals, as well as all parking at the McNamara Terminal garage, remain unchanged.
