New taxi stand construction at Lindbergh Field
December 19th, 2012 in news
With construction on San Diego Airports expansion reaching its halfway point, the new taxi stand is starting to take shape, promising "more shuttles, more taxis,
and more convenience" to airport visitors. The expansion of terminal 2, which is the largest and most expensive project in the history of Lindbergh field, is expected
to launch in the summer of 2013, with everything currently on schedule and within budget.
In addition to an all new taxi stand, the airport is also adding a dual-level roadway to relieve curb front congestion at terminal 2, along with two new pedestrian bridges, reaching the terminal from the roadway. Work is ongoing inside the new terminal expansion as well, as crews build out the interior space into gate waiting areas, bathrooms, concessions areas and storage rooms. Cost of expansion is estimated at around $1 billion, with 10 more gates being added.
The expansion also aims to relieve congestion on Harbor drive (currently the only entrance to the airport) by redirecting rental car traffic to pacific highway to the north. As construction continues, passangers should plan ahead and allow extra time to arrive, park, get to the terminal and check in at the airport to make sure they catch their flight.
If you would like hail a cab while construction is taking place, you can reach the temporary taxi stand at the east end of terminal 2 by crossing the pedestrian crosswalk at the stop light. Please remember that we are only able to offer pick up services for the airport at the designated taxi stands, and are unable to do curbside pickups.
But we will gladly drop you off at the terminal when it comes time to catch your next flight. Give us a call at 444-4444 to schedule a ride any time of day. Remember to allow yourself enough time to get to the airport by scheduling your pickup at least 2-3 hours before your flight time.
