The organization and financing of airport access studies appear to be unique in each application. Financing sources range from the Federal Government with support from communities or local transportation agencies to the airport owner/operator. Regardless of the source of financing, a consistent and broad set of goals and objectives should be defined and analyses undertaken to evaluate the impacts of system and operational alternatives on the users, the community, and the organizations involved. Unless the financial implications and potential benefits are clearly defined, it will be difficult to implement the recommendations. Even a clear or reasonably accurate statement of impacts will not guarantee implementation, since the value structure of the private or public sector agencies, as measured by the definition of priorities and allocation of revenues, are influenced by institutional factors and may be different than the values structures of the community at large. Also, budgeting or resource-allocation considerations of potential implementing agencies may span a broader or different set of objectives. This set may be completely consistent with the role of the implementing agencies.
