Please make sure you have your luggage and are ready to depart PHL prior to calling as PHL safety regulations prohibit our shuttles from waiting at the curb. Your call will connect you with CAP's dispatcher who will welcome you home, ask your name, in which PHL terminal did you arrive (Terminal A through F), how many people in your party and if you have your luggage.

(May 28, 2010) I use to a rent a car when flying out of Philadelphia. In hat way I didn't have to worry about parking. Just drop the car off and that was it. $250.00 cost Last year 2009 I used Colonial Parking for the first time. WOW! Cost me $70 something for a week and it was great. There were shuttles right away and I was at my terminal in no time. I strongly suggest Colonial Parking. The best. I am using it again this year.

(December 21, 2006) We use this place every time we fly from Philly (3-4 times per year). You can reserve a space and the bus goes from your car bumper to the airport. The bus wait at the airport has been occasionally 30 minutes, but we have been stuck longer with other services.
Pros: Takes reservations Well-lit Self-park
Cons: Buses can fill quickly at peak times.
A reasonable park, but slow bus
Unverified Review
(August 12, 2006) A clean non-skeezy parking area. It is easy to find and easy to leave. The coupon rate is typically $8.50/day. The big negative is that there is no rapid bus service. They seem to run too few busses and not keep them moving.
Pros: Easy to get to and away from
Cons: The bus is slow, you wait a while
