METHODS TO INCREASE RIDERSHIP ON AIRPORT ACCESS PEOPLE MOVER SYSTEMS - A SYSTEMS INTEGRATION APPROACH TOWARDS A SEAMLESS TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

An examination of airport transit links to larger, regional fixed guideway public transit facilities is discussed along with a review of the reasons for the success or failure of those systems. An overview of the problems associated with the failures of some of these systems in attracting more single occupancy vehicle trips to these people mover systems follows. Finally, suggestions for overcoming these impediments focusing on the provision of seamless information management and single point of check in for ticketing and baggage check are proposed to highlight the potential that regional people mover systems have of reducing surface vehicle congestion and hazardous air emissions at airports.
