This report which is intended as a reference and guide for traffic engineers and others dealing with airport ground transportation, covers key traffic characteristics of air passengers, airport employees and air cargo, and examines aspects of airport access. The work which is intended to serve as a basis for more comprehensive studies of current design practices and supply input for development of improved analytic and design procedures, highlights significant data concerning airport user characteristics and considers resultant demands for ground transportation and terminal facilities. Some of the most significant findings relate to: the annual growth forecast for air travel; the variation in the proportion of "through" and "transfer" air passengers (and corresponding the variation in ground transport demand); transport to airport; passenger-related trips; air-cargo generated traffic; rail rapid transit airport access; transport by mass transit; airport highway access capacity; airport public parking; and on-airport transit systems on exclusive rights of way.
