A NEW APPROACH FOR AIRPORT ACCESS SURVEYS

SATISFACTORY SOLUTIONS TO CONGESTION WITHIN AND AT THE ACCESS ROUTES OF AN AIRPORT MAY REQUIRE DATA BEYOND THE RESPONSE TO STANDARD ORIGIN-DESTINATION QUESTIONS AND FOR ALL SUBGROUPS OF AIRPORT USERS. AN AIRPORT IS CONSIDERED AS A CLOSED SYSTEM, GENERATING VEHICLE & PERSON TRIPS, SAMPLED WITHIN RANDOMLY OR SYSTEMATICALLY SELECTED OBSERVATION TIME PERIODS. SAMPLING AT AIRPORT EGRESS POINTS MAY BE MOST EFFECTIVE, BUT LEAST FEASIBLE ADMISTRATIVELY. AN ALTERNATIVE IS PRESENTED WHICH CONSISTS OF DEVELOPING A MODEL FOR ESTIMATING THE HOURLY VOLUME OF VEHICLE AND PERSON TRIPS FROM MACHINE COUNTS AT EGRESS POINTS AND SURVEYING FOUR STRATA OF AIRPORT USERS FOR COLLECTING ADDITIONAL DATA WITH ESTIMATION BASED ON POST-STRATIFICATION. /AUTHOR/
