Four "Pay-and-Go" machines will be added to Baltimore-Washington International Airport by next month.

Travelers who take their parking vouchers into the airport to use the machines will get an additional 30 minutes free to return to their cars and leave the garage. The machines take cash and credit cards and will be placed in the baggage claim area and near the American Airlines ticket counter.
