The executive director of the Port Authority wants to move rental cars at the St. Thomas airport from right in front of the terminal to land further away. The current rental lots would then be open for public parking, according to the Virgin Islands Daily News. "I can see the lot from my office," Darlan Brin explained. "I’ve been observing people who are coming to pick up people who can’t find a parking place. The circle around or double-park."
Spokespeople for the airport’s three rental companies had few comments. The local manager of Budget Rent a Car said, "Some port authorities pay for running a shuttle bus, but we haven’t sat down with them, so I cannot say where it’s positive or negative."
