AIRPORT ACCESSIBILITY IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
The purpose of this report is to provide an accounting of efforts undertaken in preparing an airport accessibility study. The report further acts to initiate recommendations as requested by the California legislature. The report also offers potential for improving coordination between various elements in the adopted Regional Transportation Plan. Characteristic of this study objective are analytical and empirical measurements detailing the ability of existing and planned ground transport facilities to serve passenger, cargo, employee, and other airport related accessibility requirements of air transportation centers in the Regional Airport System. The merits of this objective will be recognized by local, regional and state agencies in their efforts to evaluate access facility service levels, the impact of alternative travel modes, and the extent to which ground accessibility must be developed to meet future air travel demand at each of the regional airports. The broader purpose for the report is to identify accessibility factors which should be considered in airport planning. The study emphasizes existing and future requirements at 3 major airports: San Francisco International Airport Metropolitan Oakland International Airport, and San Jose Municipal Airport.
