The Santa Barbara Airport has announced that, effective April 1, the Long Term Parking Lot 2, off of Hollister Avenue and Frederick Lopez Road, will no longer be available for passenger parking.

“We have been monitoring our parking lots, and it is apparent that short term and long term parking, immediately adjacent to the terminal with a combined total of 994 parking spaces, are sufficient for our current passenger traffic,” said Hazel Johns, acting airport director. 

Parking rates will remain the same, Johns said:

Long Term Parking Lot 1 at 500 Fowler Road: 0-60 minutes, $ 2; each additional hour, $ 1; maximum charge per 24-hour period, $12.

Short Term Parking Lot at 500 Fowler Road: 0-60 minutes, $ 2; each additional hour, $ 1; maximum charge per 24-hour period, $20

Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) is a self-supporting enterprise owned and operated by the City of Santa Barbara, serving over 710,000 passengers annually.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
