Multi level structures for parking automobiles are required to maintain acceptable walking distances to passenger terminals. The trend to parking structures for other enterprises is creating a public demand for this service. Six airports—Miami, Toronto, San Francisco, Dallas, Los Angeles, and Houston—have parking structures in use or under construction. The daily cost of $0.40 to $0.60 for each parking space can be recovered from direct charges. The primary objective is to increase air travel by giving better service to passengers. Structures should be designed with clear spans of approximately 55 ft for parking by customers.
