Usage Policies

  • You may only reserve the terminal for one consecutive hour. If, after that time, another person has not reserved the terminal or arrived to use it, you may continue to use it, though you must give up your seat if someone does reserve it.
  • You can reserve the terminal for more than one hour per day, but please cancel your reservations if you will not be using them.
