  • The Economy Parking Lot is the SMF cheapest parking option. It is the farthest lot from the terminals, and you have to use complimentary shuttle service to reach terminals. Shuttles run every 25-30 minutes. The rate is $2 per 1/2 hour or only $10 per day.

All parking at the airport is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Since reservations are not available, we recommend you arrive early to have more time to park in case a lot is filled.
