CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Hopkins International Airport has introduced a new parking program that makes finding a free spot very easy.

According to a press release from the airport, the new system uses sensors to guide vehicles to open spaces. The system was installed in the hourly/daily garage.

In addition to the new system, a new pricing structure has also been created. After 72 hours, the short-term rate reduces to the long-term rate. The airport hopes this will make the garage more appealing for a wide range of trips.

The improvements were made based on a $24 million plan to upgrade parking. More improvements are set for July, when the current long-term garage will be demolished and replaced with a 1,000 space lot. Also, a new parking lot will be created on the north side of the terminal and a color-coded system for travelers.
