This report analyzes the future short-term and long-term automobile parking demands at Portland International Airport to determine the minimum construction cost to meet this demand. By the year 2010, 704 additional short-term spaces and 3790 long-term spaces will be required to meet the expected 2.5 million additional travellers. A linear programming model was developed and it was found that the minimum construction cost will be $34,570,000. This entails building 320 short-term spaces between the years 1995 and 2000. Long-term demand can be satisfied by constructing 1740 spaces between 1990 and 1995, 1740 spaces between 1995 and 2000, and 580 spaces between 2005 and 2010.
