Ground Access to a Choice of Airports * 690395

A survey of ground access/egress patterns at the three Washington area airports, including local origin/destination as well as ground modal choice, suggests that a major factor in airport ground congestion is the presence of airport visitors other than air travelers and employees. These extraneous visitors are largely generated by inadequate public transportation services for travelers with surburban origins and destinations. The problem may be somewhat alleviated by tailoring air service so as to provide separate suburban catchment areas for each airport.
