NEW YORK AIRPORT ACCESS DEMAND STUDY
This thesis considers the behavioral characteristics of certains users of the airport access system. Two separate but related surveys of two New York City area airport coach operators were conducted to provide data for analysis and comparison. The results of the survey by a Transportation Company were used in conjunction with data provided by the Port of New York Authority, to develop a model of travel behavior. For the passengers used in the calibration process, the model showed a greater resistivity to changes in price than to changes in time, in agreement with previous used in this area. The model was then used to predict patronage. A previously developed model was used in an attempt to predict patronage following several important operational changes (fare, frequency, and equipment) on this route. Finally the conclusions and implications to be drawn from the data and the models are discussed.
