A PRELIMINARY REPORT ON THE CLEVELAND BEFORE AND AFTER STUDY

An extensive survey was conducted as part of the before phase of a study at Cleveland's Hopkins Airport during the week of September 8-14, 1968; in all, 33,126 air passengers, 1,866 airport employees, and 541 casual visitors responded. A data tape was developed from these responses of the air passenger and employee groups, and all analysis has been conducted regarding trip purpose, local origin and destinations, and baggage checked. Within the limited amount of data available at this stage of the study, it has been estimated that: (1) 71-80% of the people boarding the CTS Rapid at the airport are air passengers; (2) more than 65% of the air passengers going between the airport and some suburban Cleveland areas appear to be using the rapid rail; (3) a large number of air passengers are willing to ride two transit systems, the CTS and the Shaker Rapid, making as many as 25 local stops and one transfer on their trips to and from the airport; (4) a relatively small percentage (10.3%) of the air passengers originating or terminating in the Cleveland area begin or end their trips in the Cleveland central business district; (5) because of the current number of air passengers using Hopkins Airport, the impact of the rapid highway congestion at the airport is only marginal.
