Parking rates will change at Raleigh-Durham International Airport, starting Wednesday.
Parking in the daily section of the RDU garage will go from $1 to $2 per hour until the daily maximum rate, unchanged at $10, is reached after five hours.
Parking in the hourly section will be unchanged at $1 per hour, with a daily maximum of $24.
That means the hourly section is less expensive than the daily section for stays of up to 9 hours.
RDU wants to encourage more travelers to use the hourly section -- to provide more space in the daily section for travelers who leave their cars for more than a day.
The park-and-ride lots will move to a flat rate of $6 per day, eliminating the old $1 hourly rate.
