If you like PDX now, wait till you see PDX Next. We’re outgrowing our current digs. In the coming years, we expect our annual passengers to jump from 20 million to 35 million. Over the next five years, a series of transformative projects will bring more Pacific Northwest-inspired architecture, local restaurants and shops, inclusive design, and carbon footprint-reducing technology. We’re rolling out a series of improvements over the next few years so that your trip to and from PDX is easier and speedier. We’re making space for light-rail and bike-path enhancements. A dedicated ride hailing pickup area will streamline the entire experience. A new flexible transit hub will add close-in parking spots and bring all car rentals on-site. Among the largest projects in the airport’s history, the iconic new terminal will double the size of the current ticketing and lobby area when it opens. This cornerstone project will give us the flexibility to meet the demands of the future, all while capturing the signature spirit of the Pacific Northwest and keeping the heart and soul of PDX intact.
