A FAIR fee for off-airport parking companies serving PHX
Off-airport parking companies serving PHX Sky Harbor International Airport provide a valuable service to travelers living in the Phoenix metropolitan area and state of Arizona. Collectively, these companies provide over 8,000 parking spaces - providing valuable assets of land, infrastructure, operations and personnel which directly and exclusively serve the parking needs of PHX Sky Harbor Airport. These companies provide an essential and necessary supplement to the on-site parking spaces at PHX Sky Harbor Airport, at no taxpayer expense. These companies aggregate vehicles coming into PHX Sky Harbor Airport and therefore reduce vehicular traffic through the airport property - a key objective of airport and city officials. Finally, these companies are in the unique position of both serving and competing with PHX Sky Harbor Airport, in that PHX Sky Harbor Airport promotes its own on-site parking. For these reasons, off-airport parking companies serving PHX Sky Harbor Airport are separate and distinct from all other ground transportation providers.
As airport officials are considering implementing additional fees for ground transportation providers, we the undersigned SUPPORT a FAIR fee for off-airport parking companies. A FAIR fee being a fee that reimburses PHX Sky Harbor Airport for it's actual and reasonable costs associated with the proportionate share of commercial traffic represented by off-airport parking companies. We the undersigned specifically OPPOSE a fee that creates fee revenue over and above actual and reasonable costs attributable to off-airport parking companies.
