Pittsburgh airport to offer free 'cell phone' lot

Associated Press

IMPERIAL, Pa. (AP) — Pittsburgh International Airport is offering free parking for folks who want to sit in their cars and wait for arriving passengers to call on cell phones to say they've arrived.

Allegheny County Airport Authority officials are hoping the plan will prevent motorists from congesting the curb near the airport's terminal or the access roads around it by driving around in circles waiting for cell phone calls from arrivals.

Drivers can now park free for an hour in the extended term lot farthest from the terminal, and pay only $1 for a second hour of parking. After two hours, the spots will cost $8.
