The purpose was to assess a new rail rapid transit extension between the Cleveland central business district and Hopkins Airport with reference to its impact on modal split and ridership. Data was collected by questionnaire before and after the commencement of transit operations. Design methodology, data collection, and control information sample questionnaires are reproduced in their original forms. Areas are outlined for each of four categories of origin and destination surveys (air passengers, passenger-related visitors, casual visitors, and airport employees). Although it was possible to poll air travelers accurately aboard their planes, special procedures were necessary to survey the airport visitors. A ground surveillance survey was designed to estimate airport use by people in these categories through sample counts of persons at selected portals, vehicles at certain locations, parking demand, and other guidelines. Appended material locates survey centers on airport maps and details instructions for project managers and participants.
