In its constant effort to improve the guest experience and make way for the construction of the Build KCI new terminal at Kansas City International Airport, the Kansas City Aviation Department will soon relocate and consolidate several of its staging parking lots to a common location.
Effective Monday, February 17, 2020, a new facility will be available for “Cell Phone Lot”, Transportation Network Company (Lyft, Uber and ZTrip - when operating as TNC) taxi, limo, shuttle and bus use. The Cell Phone Lot is a parking lot where drivers can wait free of charge for arriving passengers and await a call when the passenger is ready for pick up.
Currently the Cell Phone, limo, taxi, shuttle and bus lots are near the Air Traffic Control Tower. The construction of the new terminal and parking garage necessitates moving these activities out of the area. The new location will be easier to find and a shorter drive to the terminals.
The new facility includes a renovated building that accommodates taxi dispatch and other functions and includes new restrooms for all operators. In addition, there will be individual lots to separate the different types of transportation. Cell Phone and TNC vehicles will park together, on-demand taxis will be together and limos/shuttle and buses will be together. The new parking lots will have five bus parking stalls, 30 limo/van stalls, more than 50 taxi stalls and more than 90 Cell Phone and TNC stalls. These parking lots and facilities are ADA-compliant.
Cell Lot and TNC drivers should use the 680 Brasilia Avenue entrance via Bern Street. Taxi and limos enter off of Mexico City Avenue.
Kansas City International Airport is served by a full complement of ground transportation options including taxis, limousines, TNCs, livery, scheduled shuttle, public transit bus and rental cars.
