ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) – Atlanta airport officials say the demand for parking at the airport has declined with the rise of Uber, Lyft and other ride-hailing services.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is shelving plans to demolish and rebuild its decks at the domestic terminal.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the airport developed plans several years ago to double the size of the Terminal South and Terminal North parking decks. But airport officials eventually down-scaled those plans.

The decline in demand for airport parking has prompted airport officials to look at maintaining the existing parking decks instead of rebuilding them.
