DIA parking nears capacity

The airport asked travelers to consider options other than driving there and parking.

DENVER — Travelers at Denver International Airport (DIA) struggled to find places to park Saturday as lots at Colorado's largest airport filled up.

DIA tweeted Saturday morning that parking was becoming scarce, with the east garage and west economy lot nearing capacity and the east economy lot completely full.

Later, the airport tweeted that nearly all of its parking areas were full and asked the public to consider offsite shuttle parking options.

Just before 3 p.m., DIA tweeted another update that all of its on-airport lots were nearly full and a majority of off-site parking lots were at capacity.

The Pikes Peak and Mt. Elbert shuttle lots have been closed since May 2020. The airport said it has not been able to reopen them because of a lack of shuttle drivers.

Travelers were to consider using the RTD A-Line, a ride-share service, taxi or any other mode of transportation besides driving there and parking.

Saturday night DIA said there was limited parking available at its lots, advising patrons to check the status of each lot online. Off-site parking options were also available, the airport said.
