Buzzkill Alert: LAX Drops Free Parking for Electric Cars

January 11, 2013 at 10:21 AM | by | ()

The days of free parking just because you're eco-friendly have come and gone at Los Angeles International. The airport has announced that the incentive for passengers to park their electric car for free up to 30 days has been eliminated.

Although parking will cost the general rack-rate for all drivers, the charging facilities will continue to be free. Okay, this is great news, but the caveat is that there are only 38 spots for charging. So good luck on getting a charge because LAX is no regional airport. Since the plugs are a true premium, it has been causing some resentment from totally electric car drivers to hybrid drivers.

If you're flying out of LAX soon, you can still snag a free parking space up until March 1, after which time you'll have to cough up the $24 per day.
