Park By The Ports is a fenced in, open-air parking lot located on the eastern side of Ravenswood Rd, just north of the intersection of Ravenswood Rd. & SW 42nd St./Lee Wagner Blvd (SW 41st Ct.). There is a two-story building on site with KSA Tours/All-Star Vehicles parked by the entrance.

PBTP is directly across the street from the R/V Center & Super Stop Food Shop. Adjacent to us are Hot Pie & Rustic Inn restaurants.

This location also offers full vehicle servicing, tune-ups, oil changes, car washes and maintenance.

The city recently began construction on Ravenswood Rd. to re-construct the bridge right before our parking lot. Unfortunately the road will be closed until summer 2017. On the bright side, the detour is very easy & only takes about 5 minutes.

(June 15, 2017) All in all, it was a trouble free, inexpensive option. Everyone was polite. The shuttle was air conditioned, what else do you need? If I had to find any fault what so ever, it would be the wait on the way back from the airport. In route to the airport, the shuttle was waiting on us. On the way back,we had bad weather, flights were delayed, and traffic was a little crazy. This caused a minimal wait for the shuttle pick up time. I would definitely use them again!

Reviewers' Shuttle Wait: >30 min
(March 16, 2015) My wife and two other people disembarked the Liberty Of The Seas Saturday morning 3/14/15 approximately 10:05am. We went to the pick up area as stated in the instructions Park by the Ports had given us. We waited over an hour only to see one of their vans drop passengers of at a different area then leave. We thought it was going to come back around and pick us up. It did not. I called their office and was told they would contact the driver right away and send him to get us. Well another half passed and I called again only to get an attitude from the representative who and tell me the van was waiting on port traffic. That was a lie as we had seen many other shuttles from park and go and various others several times. I checked the shuttle numbers to verify that. Finally we spotted a shuttle from the Marriott with KSA markings and he agreed to take us to our vehicles. After we boarded that bus and we got moving the driver said the proper shuttle was finally at the port and we pulled over got off that one and reloaded on the other shuttle. They say in their brochure pick ups every 20 minutes before 10 or 10:30am then every 40 minutes after that. They offered no apology. We will not use them again. Park and go will be our choice!
We would do it again

(January 3, 2015) Other than a dimly lit parking lot, everything was handled professionally and on time, with no problems. Shuttle bus was new and clean. Very courteous staff.
Getting back from the ship

(December 19, 2014) We were picked up in a timely fashion but the driver had almost no ability to speak english. The back door to the luggage compartment was broken so our luggage had to go in the front of the vehicle. He went from our ship to two other ships and there were no other passengers. We sat around like lumps on a log while he wandered around doing who knows what. We finally got his attention and he took us to the parking lot. He brought our car around and then would not leave us alone until we gave him a tip - a tip that he did not deserve in any way, shape, or form. Our experience on the front end, arriving at the lot and getting to the ship was much better.
Very good service
