O'Hare Long Term Parking Guide

O'Hare Long Term Parking Guide

Chicago O'Hare International Airport has increased the daily and hourly parking rates as of January 1, 2020. The Main Garage and Daily Lots within walking distance to the terminals are now $42 per day, which makes ORD Airport parking the most expensive in America. 

Although the on-airport parking rates are now at a premium, it is still possible to find great deals on O'Hare Long Term Parking. There are several off-site private parking operators as well as three economy lots within a few minutes of O'Hare Airport. The parking lots are safe, well-run, and have reliable shuttles. You can feel confident in leaving your car at O'Hare while you are on vacation.

ORD Economy Lots

Chicago O'Hare International Airport provides three economy lots for drivers planning to leave their car for an extended period of time.

Shuttle buses operate between the economy lots to bring passengers to Economy Lot E where they will board the Airport Transit System (ATS) to their desired terminal. The ATS train goes to both the domestic and international terminals. The shuttles are wheelchair accessible and can accommodate two passengers riding in wheelchairs at a time.

Please Note: As of January 2019, the ATS is closed for renovations. ORD Airport has provided shuttle buses that operate between each of the parking lots to the domestic and international terminals. The ATS is expected to return to service in early 2020.

 

Economy Parking Lot G

Economy Lot G is located along Bessie Coleman Drive. It is a popular lot for business travelers, so it is frequently full during weekdays. Check the parking status before you go via the Chicago O'Hare International Airport website.

  • Security: Entrance barrier, 24-hour parking attendants
  • Payment: Cash, debit, or credit
  • Outdoor and paved parking lot

  • Accessible Parking Spaces: 39

How does it work?

Drivers pull up to the barrier entrance and take a ticket from the machine. Pull into the parking lot and find an open parking spot. Walk to the front of the parking lot to catch the shuttle. Since the ATS is closed for renovations, a shuttle bus will take you directly from Lot G to the ORD domestic and international terminals.

When the ATS returns to service in early 2020, the shuttle buses will deliver passengers to Lot E, where they will board the ATS to the terminals.

 

Economy Parking Lot E
