Officials at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport want to develop a parking app that uses demand-based pricing, allowing travelers to pay for their parking space ahead of time, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

The price of the parking spot would vary depending on how many spots are available. During peak travel times, such as holidays, parking spaces would be more of a premium.

On weekends, parking could be cheaper.

There are 31,800 parking spaces available.

The airport recently approved a three-year contract with English firm ADVAM Ltd to develop the app for $315,093.

Currently, parking at the airport can cost travelers as much as $31 per day for valet service or $24 per day for self-parking. Lower rates are available for those willing to shuttle from one of DFW’s Express or remote lots, ranging from $10-$15 per day.
