Authored on

Due to ongoing construction, passengers utilizing SBA’s rental car services will encounter a new, temporary route to pick up and drop off vehicles starting November 29. This temporary lot is approximately 0.2 miles (or two city blocks) from the south end of the Terminal. 

Directions to Rental Car Lot from Terminal:

  • Exit the Terminal
  • Use the crosswalks to cross straight through the Short Term Parking Lot
  • Using the sidewalk, turn right onto James Fowler Road
  • Continue straight down the sidewalk, past the construction zone, to reach the rental car lot on the right

All rental cars should be picked up and dropped off at the temporary lot shown on the map in green. Please plan accordingly when considering the timing of your travel. Note: All travelers must stop by the rental car desk inside the Terminal before picking up their vehicles. 

This construction is part of the Southfield Redevelopment Project. Once completed, this project will provide approximately 50 additional parking spaces for rental cars, as well as three additional spaces on the airfield for overnight aircraft parking. Construction is expected to continue over the next few months.
