PDX Jacks Up Prices for Uber, Lyft Parking

Airport increase comes after years of flat rates.

Starting in June, it will cost travelers more to park, take a taxi or shuttle or hail an Uber or Lyft to and from Portland International Airport.

The Port of Portland released new prices Wednesday, saying it hadn’t raised its parking rate in nearby garages for four years and hadn’t changed the price to park in its Economy Parking Lot in nearly a decade.

The changes begin June 11.

Uber and Lyft users now will see pick-up and drop-off fees of $3 each. Taxi rates also are increasing to $3.50 per trip from $2.50 per trip. The same rate applies to on-demand shuttles.

The economy parking lot’s hourly rate won’t change, but the maximum price will jump $2 to $12 per day. The long-term garage will increase to $24 per day from $21 per day.
