John Wayne Airport provides us with several parking options: two curbside Valet Parking locations, and Main Street Parking. All parking spaces are open 24 hours. JWA's Parking Access and Revenue Control System (PARCS) permit the airport to electronically manage parking spaces and accessibility so passengers can find a parking space with ease. The Parking Space Count System lets passengers see how many areas are accessible on each level as they enter the parking space.

Individual sensors placed in ADA and short-term (2-hour) spaces will provide the exact count of these spaces to be shown on roadway signage. The space count system will also tell passengers on the roadway if the structure is full absolutely.
