The shuttle will provide transportation from the new parking lot, which is under construction, to the terminal building.

The new lot will add 611 new parking spaces to the 728 that are currently at the airport.

The region says the existing lot was at capacity a year ago when there were 33 weekly passenger flights to and from the airport.

In addition, council also approved a plan to add six pieces of art to the terminal expansion for up to two years.
