Austin airport’s Free Cell Phone Lot, used by drivers waiting to pick up arriving passengers, has temporarily relocated as the original is enhanced with new shopping, restaurants, gas station and kids play area. The Free Cell Phone Lot moved to 9340 Rental Car Lane, in a lot formerly known as Lot H, that was used as overflow for long term parking. Once in the lot, drivers wait for a call from their passenger to pick them up at the upper or lower level terminal curb.
