Indy Park Ride & Fly offers amenities to biz travelers

The Indianapolis International Airport’s massive new parking garage and surface lot aren’t the only game in town when it comes
to airport parking.

Indy Park Ride & Fly, the airport’s largest private competitor, opened its 2,312-space lot in time to serve the first
customers
traveling from the new midfield terminal. Hendricks County approved the zoning for the $9 million lot earlier this year.

Parent company Park Ride Fly USA, which also owns off-site lots serving Chicago Midway Airport and Albany, N.Y., invested
part of that $9 million in some amenities to appeal to business travelers.

The main feature of the lot is a service garage, where travelers can leave their cars for oil changes or other work while
they’re away. The service garage is not yet open, a spokeswoman said.

The company is offering an automatic payment service called "Indy BizExpress Fast Pass." Paying members will get
a transponder
that automatically opens lot gates, lights the way to a parking spot, and sends bills online.

Park Ride Fly USA has closed the lots that served the old terminal, Indy Park Ride & Fly and 1st Class Express, a spokeswoman
said.
