Accessible parking

Accessible Parking Spaces for Persons with Disabilities

Extra wide accessible parking spaces are conveniently located in all parking facilities at the Airport. Vehicles parking in accessible spaces must display a valid Disabled Person Parking Placard or License Plate.

Terminal Parking Structure Entrance

Please note that at this time, terminal parking can be entered from the Departure (upper) Level only.

Main Street Parking

The most economical option, the uncovered Main Street Parking is located at 1512 Main Street in Irvine. Courtesy shuttle service to and from the Riley Terminal is available every 15 minutes. Shuttle buses are lift-equipped. Main Street Lot shuttle pick-up locations at the Terminal are on the Arrival (lower) Level at the third island of the Ground Transportation Center for Terminals A and B, and in front of Terminal C Arrival (lower) Level just north of the crosswalk into Parking Structure B2.

Accepted Payment Methods and Payment Options

Cash, VCash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express are accepted in all parking locations. Debit cards bearing the Visa or MasterCard logos are acceptable.

Ticketless Options: Passengers can park at any parking location without a parking ticket by using the new ticketless parking option. When entering any parking facility, simply insert a valid credit card into the entry column's yellow slot or waive your contactless credit card at the entry column - no ticket will be issued to you and no charges will be incurred at entry time. Upon return and exiting the parking facility, proceed to any Express Exit Lane, and insert or waive the same credit card used upon entry for calculation of parking fees and payment. A receipt will automatically be printed. The SAME credit card MUST be for entry AND exit. This ticketless method eliminates having to keep track of a parking ticket while away on travel, reduces wait time at exit, and eliminates waste from disposal of the paper parking ticket.

Contactless Credit Cards: With the implementation of JWA's new state-of-the-art Parking Access and Revenue Control System (PARCS), passengers can waive their contactless credit cards such as MasterCard PayPass and American Express Pay at entry and exit lanes in lieu of inserting them into the machines, making for a quicker transaction.

Express Exit Lanes: Passengers paying by credit card can use dedicated Express Exit Lanes and avoid waiting for a cashier. A receipt will automatically be printed. Cash is not accepted in Express Exit Lanes.

Pay-on-Foot Station in Parking Structure CPay-on-Foot Stations (Parking Structure C only)
Pay-on-foot stations allowing for credit card payment of parking fees, prior to returning to one's vehicle, are now available in Parking Structure C on levels 1 and 3. Pay-on-Foot stations allow passengers to pay parking fees and exit Parking Structure C using Express Exit Lanes without waiting for a cashier. Cash is not accepted at pay-on-foot stations.
