The CDA operates alternatively-fueled and hybrid fleet vehicles at Midway also.
The CDA provides preferred parking for hybrid vehicles at O'Hare. In most lots premier parking spaces are available for Hybrid Vehicles. Look for available spots with Hybrid Vehicle Only signs. There are over 60 designated spaces, including 32 in the O’Hare Main Parking Garage as well as in surface parking lots.
In addition to electric vehicle charging stations, the CDA provides preferred parking for hybrid vehicles at Midway. This practice encourages employees and the public to operate low-emission hybrid vehicles around the airport instead of conventionally-fueled vehicles.
Spaces are located near the elevator lobbies in the parking garages and by the shuttle bus stops in the surface parking lots. A map of preferred parking for hybrid vehicles is provided below. For more information, please call (773) 838-0756.
