RDU to roll out new parking system by spring 2024
The new system reportedly helped guests find an open parking space 63% faster.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- The parking deck experiment at Raleigh-Durham International Airport has come to an end, and the test was a success.

RDU said the system, which was installed on the sixth floor of Central Parking Deck, helped guests find an open parking space 63% faster than areas without the system.

The system uses lights, cameras and digital message boards to more quickly direct you to available open parking spots.

"The parking guidance system is the latest innovation RDU is deploying to make travel even more convenient," said Michael Landguth, president and CEO of the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority. "Guests are flying in record numbers and this technology will help them begin their journey with a seamless parking experience."

RDU began testing the system in July. Now, it is going to be expanded into the other parking areas at RDU. The system is expected to be fully operational by spring 2024.
