Consolidated Rental Car Facility (CONRAC)
More than 2 million passengers complete rental car transactions each year at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
In order to meet current needs and anticipated demands for rental vehicles, Hartsfield-Jackson is building a state-of-the-art
Consolidated Rental Car (CONRAC) facility. When it opens in November 2009, CONRAC will house all Airport rental car companies and their
associated operations, including customer service, administrative offices, ready/return parking, fueling and maintenance facilities.
The 67.5-acre CONRAC facility is located across Interstate 85 from the Airport and will connect to the existing passenger terminals
via an Automated People Mover (APM) train system. The APM can move more than 10,000 passengers an hour to and from the passenger
terminal along the 1.6 mile long elevated guideway. The trip between the terminal and the CONRAC APM station will be approximately
five minutes. A stop at the Georgia International Convention Center (GICC) will provide direct passenger access to the facility during
conventions and events.
By centralizing all rental car operations adjacent to the Airport, CONRAC will eliminate the need for rental agency shuttle buses
and dramatically reduce the number of rental cars on terminal roadways. This should help minimize the Airport’s carbon footprint
by improving overall traffic flow around the passenger terminal.
CONRAC is one of several projects included in Hartsfield-Jackson’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The $6 billion-plus program supports the Airport’s overall mission by planning, designing, building and maintaining facilities to meet
projected growth in domestic and international travel. CIP projects reduce flight delays, increase airfield and terminal capacity,
enhance overall customer service, and substantially contribute to Georgia’s economic development.
