Phoenix Sky Harbor
International Airport

Annual Vehicle Permits

Sky Harbor at Night
All ground transportation vehicles providing service at Sky Harbor International Airport shall display a current and valid decal affixed to the exterior, lower passenger side corner of the windshield. Vehicles not displaying an appropriate decal will not be authorized to operate on the Airport.

Vehicle Decal

In order to receive an annual decal to operate at the airport, a company must have a file in our Ground Transportation Office (New Company Setup).

Since the new GT Policy went into effect on June 18, 2016, the annual decal is designed to be more efficient, including:

  1. Individualized to include company name, license plate number, and last six digits of VIN
  2. Two-digit month/year of expiration
  3. Issued annually
  4. Registered to a specific vehicle and non-transferable
  5. Expires on the last day of the month issued (one-year expiration date)
  6. Annual decal can be renewed within 30 days prior to decal expiration
  7. New placement on vehicles (exterior windshield)
  8. Decal material is tamper resistant
  9. No charge

In order to streamline the process, decals are now issued using a fixed rolling calendar year according to company name.
