PDX Temporary Cell Phone Waiting Area

To ease traffic congestion on airport terminal roadways during the busy travel season, Portland International Airport (PDX) provides a temporary cell phone waiting area.

The lot – with capacity for up to 30 vehicles – provides a waiting area where motorists can park for free for a maximum of 30 minutes, wait for a cell phone call from family or friends announcing their arrival, and then drive up to the airport terminal’s curbside passenger pick-up area.

Motorists must stay with their vehicles at all times.

The cell phone waiting area is conveniently located off of Northeast 82nd Avenue, on Northeast Air Cargo Road, near the airport’s cargo facilities, a short 3 minute drive from the terminal. Signs on Northeast Airport Way and Northeast 82nd Avenue approaching the airport will guide motorists to the cell phone waiting area’s new location.

For your convenience, a link to a map highlighting the cell phone waiting area is provided below:
