SMART AIRPORT LINKS. A GLOBAL INVENTORY OF MAJOR AIRPORT PLANS FOCUSED ON THE USE OF AUTOMATED PEOPLE MOVERS

Airports are growing rapidly. Their sprawled, often unplanned development and increasing ground congestion demand public attention. This is a recent phenomenon. Institutions that plan and manage urban growth have, with few exceptions, not responded to the new challenges that airports and their surrounding districts or "mini-cities" present. We have little vision of what the Airport City should look like. Little comprehensive data beyond aircraft movements and total passenger counts exists. This survey of airport expansion plans is a response to the growing need for information on the problems, strategies, and opportunities before us in the 1990s and beyond in the 21st century. It emphasizes passenger ground transport connections. In particular, it focuses on the role that automated people movers have and can make to growing airport complexes.
