As you know I am a globetrotter for both work and play. I have parked our car in every possible parking option available seeking the best of the best. I can personally tell you that parking a car is only part of the issue when you are traveling but getting to and from the airport is a whole other potential struggle.
Traveling before traveling, or getting parked and to the airport is its own little beast, so making sure your car is parked, that you have a reliable ride to the airport and that you have a ride from the airport are all things to consider when choosing airport parking.
Covered parking is a plus when you come home to Pittsburgh to find it raining, snowing or sleeting and you have luggage trailing behind you. Here are the 6 features of the best-covered airport parking Pittsburgh that I have come to appreciate as I travel the globe. Lavishly live travel out loud and park under cover!
Learning Through Error
Not so long ago we returned from a family trip. While our shuttle from the airport was right on time, our car was not right. The winter snow in Pittsburgh falls heaviest in February and upon our return, we found a lot of snow on the ground and a car coated in snow. Perhaps the car being covered wasn’t so bad, I mean who cares that when you open your doors all this snow falls into the seats and suddenly you look like you wet your pants right?
The worst part of the return was still not discovered. We got into our car, seats coated with snow that had not been brushed off the vehicle and looked through our freshly cleared windows. As we drove towards our home, we turned on the defroster and suddenly called for the windshield wipers only to find they did NOT work. Why was the front windshield so clean but the rest of the car not?
That really never made sense until we realized that while we came to a heated car, it was snow coated and the windshield was not cleared with a scraper, rather our wipers. The wipers, in fact, had taken off about 6″ of a snow/ice combo. Enough of the bad, we just decided it was time to find covered parking and in fact had passed this location up a few times without really investigating it.

6 Best Features Of The Best Covered Airport Parking In Pittsburgh
First, let me introduce you to covered parking that you never want to be without. I do want to mention that my parking was comped in exchange for this post, but the storyline and details are all mine, based on personal experience and being a travel writer!
Convenient check in and check out
You don’t get there and search for employees, they are fully staffed making it easy to get to and from the airport.
You might be picked up right at your car under the covered parking or you can head over to the lobby and be picked up there.
Flights don’t stop and travel is all hours, as is the Parking Spot. The Parking Spot functions 24/7 to meet the demands of traveling.
Well Marked Shuttles
No standing around looking for which shuttle is yours, the Parking Spot shuttle stands out with its black and gold (it’s Pittsburgh Perfect). Inside the van, you won’t be pulling out the sanitizer because they are well maintained! (thank you)
Returning To The Car
This is the most glorious part because the car is not snow covered, you are not getting rained on, you can take your time, get situated and then exit, either through self-checkout or with a cashier.
The app for the Parking Spot is easy to use, has al of your information in it that will help you find your car, provide your upcoming reservations, allow you to schedule reservations, find a shuttle and more. It’s easy to use and a perk as far as I am concerned.
Lavishly live traveling out loud, stay covered, stay dry and keep that snow off your car using what I consider to be the 6 Features Of The Best Covered Airport Parking In Pittsburgh!
