Update on Consolidated Rental Facilities

The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority agreed to extend a $1 a day "facility charge" on vehicle rentals at Toledo Express Airport to fund a new rental-car servicing center, The Toledo Blade reports.

The consolidated service center will replace individual facilities that rental agencies at Toledo Express use to clean and maintain vehicles at the airport.

A new building to accommodate the currently far-flung and unsheltered rental car fleet at Charleston's Yeager Airport is being planned, according to the Charleston Daily Mail.

The airport's governing board selected N Visions of South Charleston to choose the appropriate size and configuration for the structure, to be built adjacent to the main terminal and connected to it by a covered walkway.

Rental car companies at the airport currently each have space in three different outdoor lots, the Charleston Daily Mail reports. By consolidating the pick-up and return area in one place, the airport would have space to accommodate overnight parking for another commercial aircraft on the terminal apron, airport board officials say.

Funds to pay for the new building will come from an existing $2 fee being charged to rental car customers at the Charleston airport.
