Drivers who are picking up passengers can use the Cell Phone Lot free of charge. The lot has a maximum stay of one hour. Drivers must remain in their vehicles while waiting for incoming passengers to call. Once the call has been received, drivers can leave the Cell Phone Lot and head to the correct terminal to complete their pick-up. This lot is open from 5am to 1am.
Long Term Parking
The Long-Term Parking area at SFO consists of two floors. The first floor can hold cars up to nine feet in height and the second floor has a height restriction of seven feet. Rates in the Long-Term Parking are $13 per day. This is often the least expensive option.
Discount Airport Parking
Long-Term Parking has the lowest rates, but may not be suitable for those needing to stay for less than a day. The Central Parking Garage offers rates of $1 per every 12 minutes. Here cars can be no taller than 6 ½ feet. The daily charge is $33. The International Garages are available as well at $1 every 12 minutes or a much lower daily rate of $20.
Park FAST is another option and costs $5 per hour or $35 per day, and all ParkFAST members receive a $2 discount. Drivers swipe their credit or debit card upon entry and then swipe it again to leave. The ParkFAST garage is located in the covered central garage, but has its own private entry and exit eliminating lines. ParkFAST memberships are suitable for frequent flyers and require two credit or debit cards to be on file permanently.
Every parking area in San Francisco International Airport has handicapped spaces. Vehicles parked in these areas must have an appropriate handicapped sign visible to the attendants. Drivers parking in the long-term lot will find the parking spaces near Bus Stop 1. All shuttle buses are equipped with a wheel chair life. In the long-term parking spaces, there is no height limit. The other garages have a restriction of 6 ½ feet. All spaces are adjacent to the elevators. Oversize vehicles needing to park in the main garages must head to the valet parking (most expensive at $38 a day) for assistance.

Many of the SFO airport hotels offer free shuttles to and from their hotels. These hotels all offer packages that provide both parking and accommodations either before, after, or before and after air flights. Good Nite Inn, Howard Johnson SFO, and Quality Inn SFO all offer lodging with up to ten days of complimentary parking.
