New cell phone lot location June 6

YYC is expanding its footprint to accommodate future growth near the terminal; which may cause traffic delays during construction driving into the terminal on Airport Road. Drivers should provide themselves extra time and expect slower speed limits into the terminal and cell lot.  

Effective June 6 at 10 a.m., the cell phone lot (on Airport Link) is now permanently in a bigger gravel lot a block north of the current location. Drivers will experience the first detour on the east side of Airport Link N.E., crossing north through the existing Taxi Lot and Cell Phone Waiting Lot. Throughout the project, they will also experience traffic accommodations, lane closures, temporary signage and reduced speed.

We expect the major components of this project to be complete by October this year.

Are driving directions to the new cell phone lot available somewhere? For example, is there access from Airport Trail NE, Barlow Trail and/or Airport Road?

Thank you for the article! This is what I need to find.

The cell parking lot was a nightmare on Thursday at 1030 pm Feb 16th. No rhyme or reason, 4 rows of cars trying to leave at once, took 40 min just to get as far as round about. Cabs, shuttles and cars all exiting from 1 spot and hitting a stop sign. I've been coming to this airport frequently for 10 years and never, ever seen it this bad. Some more planning needs to be done to ease the flow and make it safer and more efficient. Thank you for your time.

We have been trapped in the cell phone lot for over an hour!!! 10:30pm on a Thursday evening. This is the most poorly designed parking lot we have ever witnessed. All of the vehicles and taxis leaving to pick people have to filter through one stop sign. I agree with Cheri - absolutely no rhyme or reason. Please don’t make the same mistake as we did - find another place to wait.

I confer with the comments above from Tamara and Cheri regarding the backup and absolute confusion getting out of the cellphone lot. I was there last night, April 7 at 10:30pm and it was chaotic and not weather related at all. It took me 40 minutes to get out of the lot with vehicles inching along. Something needs to be

done to rectify this backup. It was much better the way it was before. To have three merging lanes to all get into roundabout is crazy. An improvement needs to be done to speed up the flow.

ur map is pathetic and so are ur directions. If u want to be

recognized as an International Airport then I suggest u show

information with better directions on a larger scale than a postage stamp map, Really embarasing.as a Calgarian with out of town guests.
