After kissing cars goodbye inside the fully lit and fenced-in facility, guests can grab their luggage and hop aboard a shuttle that will transport them to their terminal. Parking patrons can even request optional upkeep such as car washes and oil changes to ensure vehicles are shiny and ready to roll when they return. The facility is open 24 hours a day to accommodate redeye flights, which often stop to peek inside and coo at the sleeping cars.
