​Busing

  • Buses run 24 hours a day seven days a week with a five-to-ten minute headway (wait time).
  • Bus ride takes about 20 minutes. It could potentially take more time if there is heavy traffic.
  • The Employee Parking Lot is divided into Lots 1 and 2.
  • The buses are identified as Lot 1 or Lot 2 and will only go to one lot.
  • Park in either Lot 1 or Lot 2.
  • Board a bus from one of the 14 bus stations in the two lots. 
  • There are two bus stops on the upper level roadway. One stop is located between Terminals 1 and 2. The second stop is located between Terminals 3 and 4. The stops will be clearly identified. 












 

 

ADA (Updated July 21, 2017) 

  • After you park your car, call 954-359-3636 and provide the bus stop number for an ADA accessible minivan. There will also be parking personnel to assist located curbside in both the parking lot and at the terminal bus stops.   
  • For safety reasons, all ADA pick-up and drop-off locations will be on the upper level curbside, RCC Busway or the shelters in the Employee Parking lots. 
  • The shuttle buses are not ADA compatible. To meet ADA requirements, there are ADA minivans available.

  • A dedicated security officer, a shuttle supervisor, and parking staff patrol the lot. 
  • Each bus has interior and exterior cameras.
  • The lot will be under surveillance by CCTV cameras. 

Real Time Information

The free FLL App provides shuttle bus arrival times and locations of the buses. The App only tracks the new smaller white shuttle buses not the larger shuttle buses in our current fleet. Since the FLL app cannot track the larger shuttle buses, the wait times will not be totally accurate in some instances. As more shuttle bus drivers complete their training, we will use more of the new white shuttles buses and less of the larger buses so the App will be more accurate.

Why

  • Airport employee parking was relocated from an off-site lot to the Cypress Garage as a temporary measure in 2007. This was during the peak of a national recession because it was underutilized by passengers at this time but had room for airport employees. Today, that is not the case.
  • Passenger growth has created the demand for parking in the existing garages. The number of passengers has increased by over 6.5 million from 22.7 million in 2007 to 29.2 million in 2016.
  • To accommodate the increase in passengers, more airport employees are needed. There is now a shortage of parking spaces in the Cypress Garage. At peak times, from 14 – 17 hours per day, nearly 4,000 employees attempt to park in 3,143 spaces.
