Redmond City Council Votes to Increase Paid Parking Fees at Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM)

Dec-31-2018

 

The Redmond City Council has voted to adopt a paid parking rate increase, at Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) which will take effect January 1, 2019. (Customers parked prior to midnight on January1st will be charged previous rates)

A recent Airport survey compared RDM parking fees to other regional airports of the same size. With the current daily maximum parking fee at $10 a day, the survey showed RDM to be one of the lowest priced airports of its size. RDM has seen a 75 percent increase in travelers over the past five years. More funds will be needed to keep up with growth. Based upon this survey and the substantial recurring parking shortages at RDM in 2018, Redmond City Council members voted to approve an increase in fees. Cash, credit and debit cards are accepted forms of payment.

  • The maximum daily parking cost will increase from $10.00 to $15.00 a day.
  • The $1.00 fee for the first 30 minutes, and the $2.00 hourly rate (31 minutes plus) will remain unchanged.
  • The seventh day will not be waived or discounted.

Parking availability at RDM fluctuates in accordance with the airport’s arriving and departing flight schedule. Parking lot attendants will monitor availability and will periodically update the airport’s website. To help RDM passengers ‘know before they go’, RDM officials encourage passengers to view the Airport’s website at www.flyrdm.com and consider choosing alternative ground transportation options (found at http://www.flyrdm.com/?Ground-Transportation) The airport also encourages passengers to be prepared to leave, or arrive, in winter weather conditions that may present slippery or hazardous conditions. Allow extra time for driving and walking, safely, in winter conditions.

The curb at the front of the terminal is for active loading and unloading only. Vehicles are not permitted to wait at the curb. Violations are subject to a $50.00 citation. The approved “cell phone waiting” area is free and is located across the street from the Airport along SW Salmon Avenue.
