Tampa International Airport to Get Updates, Starting with a Rental Car Facility

According to the Tampa Bay Times, the Tampa International Airport revealed plans on Oct. 4 to build an “airtropolis” starting with a rental facility on airport grounds.

Included in the plans is also a new tram that would connect passengers to the new consolidated rental car facility (conrac). According to airport CEO Joe Lopano, the “airtropolis” would consist of rental car services, commercial development, parking garages and a light rail station.

A series of public meetings, starting Oct. 25 at the St. Petersburg Marriott Clearwater Hotel, will be held to discuss the plans. The master plan is set to be completed in February.
