MAA, airport businesses combine to find lost items

With nearly 20 million people traveling through Baltimore-Washington International Airport annually, various items tend to be accidentally left behind.

The Maryland Aviation Administration works with airport businesses to return lost belongings to their owners. BWI patrons and employees may stop at the Airport Lost and Found Office on the lower level of Concourse C, or call 410-859-7387 to speak to an MAA representative or leave a message.

Rail station garages due to open this year

BWI is on schedule to reopen its original rail station parking garage in July and a new seven-level structure in late December.

When complete, the two structures will provide 3,275 spaces for rail station patrons.

Meanwhile, only monthly pass holders who have made previous arrangements will be permitted in the BWI rail station garage. All other MARC and Amtrak passengers will be permitted to use the Red Lot on the east side of Amtrak Way.

Dedicated shuttle buses, marked Red Lot, will transport rail passengers to the BWI station. Shuttle service will not be provided from the Red Lot to the airport. Free shuttle service will be provided 24 hours a day with extra buses operating during peak hours, 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Parking will not be permitted along Amtrak Way; cars will be ticketed and towed.
