    Typically I’m with you on the high cost of “free parking” but I’d be curious to know if this garage at DIA turns a profit given the outrageous prices they charge.

      Good guess; parking at DIA is a big cash cow. It’s been awhile since I’ve read the particulars but parking and concessions bring in lots of free-flow cash. Given that DIA passenger traffic is up an impressive 7.5% through July that’s not likely to change anytime soon. I’m curious to see how close DIA gets to 60 million passengers for 2016.
