Motorcyclists now have a designated place to park at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
The airport added 18 motorcycle spaces at its Quick Ride Ramp late last month after receiving a handful or requests, said Melissa Scovronski, manager of Public Affairs and Marketing for the airport.
"The demand isn’t huge at this point, about one per week," she said. "But we have received requests for this more specialized accommodation in the past."
The Quick Ride Ramp opened earlier this year. The two-story ramp off Post Road and Hwy. 5 near a Super America station was formerly used by Delta Air Lines employees but converted to public parking to ease the crunch at the main terminal.
It has 1,400 spaces and offers parking for $14 a day for those who pay by credit card, which is $8 less than parking at the main terminal. Shuttles run 24 hours a day between the ramp and the main terminal. The ride takes about 5 minutes.
Shuttles do not serve Terminal 2/Humphrey, but travelers can reach Terminal 2 by hopping a light-rail train at the main terminal at no additional cost.
