While across town at Nashville Int'l (BNA) they're preparing to open their new rental car garage adjacent to the main parking garage for the terminal. This will help streamline the process and those wanting a rental will not have to board a bus and travel 3/4 of a mile or so to the south side of the airport to pick one up.
"Rental-car customers returning vehicles to Nashville International Airport starting Tuesday will be directed by signs to a new drop-off location as the airport opens a $70 million consolidated rental-car garage.
The garage, under construction since February 2010, increases space at the airport for 2,400 rental cars, up from 1,400, and will accommodate the vehicles of nine rental agencies.
But perhaps more important for local users of the airport, moving the rental cars to their own building will open 600 spaces on the first level of the short-term parking garage, which is where the rentals have been stored."
