Car-rental complex to be built at Port Canaveralby Leah Zanolla

Port Canaveral will soon have a new rental-car complex built near the Disney Cruise Line terminal. Port commissioners unanimously voted for the $2 million project and gave port staff permission to begin the process of finding car-rental companies to fill the building. There will be room for three car rental companies, 571 vehicle spaces, office space, a fueling station and a car wash. A project timeline has not yet been announced.
The location of the complex and its proximity to Port Canaveral will make it a convenient stop for cruise passengers. Payless Car Rental is currently the only car rental agency on the property and their franchise owner has expressed interest in moving to the new building.
Mike Meekins, senior director of cruise and port operations, says that this project has been talked about for a while and is something that car-rental companies have requested in the past. He hopes that the rental agencies' lease agreements will help generate revenue for the port.
Port Authority chairman Tom Weinberg says of the project, "It makes Port Canaveral that much more desirable a location to sail. It will be a win-win for the port and the rental companies on site, and a significant advantage for our passengers."
