Self-service parking kiosks at Miami Airport

Licence-plate recognition used on departure

MIA Quick Pay self-service kiosks speed up paying for parking.

Passengers parking at Miami International Airport can now use self-service kiosks to pay for their parking. Called MIA Quick Pay, the kiosks allow passengers to pre-pay for their parking inside the garage and exit without stopping.

Passengers now simply take their parking ticket with them when they park and use the ticket at the Quick Pay kiosk to pay when they return to the garage.

Then can then exit without stopping as their licence-plate is recognised at the exit.

Pay options include all major credit and debit cards, cash, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Wallet.

When Quick Pay customers get to MIA’s exit lanes, they insert their pre-paid ticket into the ticket reader to exit within seconds.

The Quick Pay stations are now available at the main entrances to both the Dolphin and Flamingo parking garages on the ground, first, and third levels.

Help in finding a parked vehicle

It’s really common for passengers to forget where they parked their car. The Quick Pay self-service kiosks have a “Find My Car” feature. Drivers enter their license plate number and view a map of where the vehicle is parked in the garage.

Parking guidance

A new parking guidance system is helping passengers to find where a free slot is

Camera sensors installed above the garage’s driving lanes detect available spaces and light-up LED lights green for open spaces and red for occupied ones. LED space-available signs installed at each decision point direct parkers to quickly find lanes and levels where there are available spaces as well.

More improvements coming to MIA

The airport is planning more improvements this year including new passenger loading bridges and renovated bathrooms, elevators, escalators, and moving walkways.

Ralph Cutié, MDAD Director and CEO:

Our new parking system is the latest way that we are modernizing the entire passenger journey at MIA, from the cabin to the curb. From new passenger loading bridges to renovated bathrooms, elevators, escalators, and moving walkways, more exciting improvements are coming soon this year.
