In the simulation model of the Northeast Corridor transportation project (NECTP), access links are connectors between districts and the coded transportation network. Access link characteristics are the travel impedances, such as time, cost, and distance, associated with a given link. The research documented in the report has resulted in the development and implementation of a framework for describing the access phenomenon and for estimating access characteristics for intercity person movements involving common carrier terminals. The ACcess Characteristics EStimation System (ACCESS), provides a computer-based, analytical methodology that can be used to estimate point-to-point travel impedances or weighted site accessibilities.
