Bob Hope Airport Parking Rates Increase
The Transit Coalition reports that parking at Burbank Airport is getting more expensive. The airport has raised the price of most of their lots from a very affordable $7 to $9 and as much as $11 a day. In 2002, rates were dropped when air travel plummeted and a private lot opened up next to the airport. Last year, the airport purchased the private lot and now holding a monopoly, the first thing the airport does is jack up the price.
There are a few private spots for parking such as the Burbank Hilton which provides a shuttle, however the most convenient lots are now under airport control.
Competition was a good thing that forced the price of parking down, but its now a thing of the past, and you get to pay.
I honestly don't think the government needs to be in the parking business, but then this old, dead Republican mayor doesn't think government should own airports either. I bet that made some of you red diaper doper babies make a sissy in your pants, ehh?
