$230M Rental Facility Planned for Seattle-Tacoma Airport

SEATTLE --- The Port of Seattle, which owns Seattle-Tacoma Airport, has begun plans for a $230 million consolidated rental car facility to be built on a 21-acre site north of the airport, the News Tribune reported.

In their last session, state legislators approved a plan for financing the facility and shuttle system. On Aug. 1, rental customers will begin paying a $4-per-day customer facility charge to finance the project. The new facility is expected to house nine or 10 rental car brands.
