Newark Airport ATS Circulator System Studies

The paper describes the analytical process and simulation-based tools that were used to perform a study of alternatives for an automated transit system (ATS) that would serve as an airport circulator system for possible future conditions at Newark Liberty International Airport in Newark, New Jersey. The paper describes the alternative ATS configurations that would provide non-secure landside connections between the three terminals and remote landside facilities, and in some case studies include a separate additional automated people mover (APM) circulator system to provide secure airside connections. The analysis was primarily performed utilizing the Advanced Land-Transportation Performance Simulation™ (ALPS™) software, which is described in the paper to include the flight schedule processing and the integrated pedestrian and transit system simulations.
