TULSA — According to a Tulsa International Airport press release, new curbside procedures will start Sunday, August, 18.
Officials say parking and waiting at the curb for passengers to arrive will no longer be permitted.
If a vehicle is parked at the curb, it must be in the process of "active loading or unloading of baggage and picking up or dropping off passengers," officials say.
Officials say if a driver would like to wait for a passenger, they can use the short-term parking located on the top level of the parking garage.
Short term parking is $1 for the first 30 minutes, $2 per hour, and a max of $12 per day.
Airport police officers will be patrolling the curb to enforce these new procedures.
Officials say if a driver decides to not move their cars out of an active loading area, they may be issued a traffic citation.
The new curbside procedures will help keep roadways safe for visitors due to an increase in passenger traffic at Tulsa International Airport, officials say.
