THE ROLE GROUND TRANSPORTATION CAN PLAY IN THE AIRPORT SITE SELECTION PROCESS
This paper relates significant aspects of the mass transit system analysis activity associated with the recent South Florida Airport Site Selection Program. The configuration, performance, cost, and service characteristics of the quasi-conceptual ground access transportation systems continually represented one of the main decision factors as the Review Authorities deliberated on each candidate airport site. Discussion of the transportation system impact on these deliberations is essentially the prime objective of this presentation.
