DENVER (CBS4)– Good news for Denver International Airport passengers– 800 more parking spaces were added on Monday. Plus, most of those spaces are covered!
The new lot at the A Line station located at 61st Avenue and Pena Boulevard opened Monday morning. Passengers can park in the lot and ride the train to DIA.
“Denver International Airport is proud to partner with Panasonic and Xcel Energy in bringing this truly unique parking project to life,” airport CEO Kim Day said in a statement. “Not only will the parking lot at 61st and Peña provide convenient, covered parking through our unique solar canopy, but it also provides a platform in which we can test new technology that promotes sustainable growth and innovation.”
