MONITORING THE EFFECTS OF THE DALLAS/FORT WORTH REGIONAL AIRPORT. VOLUME I. GROUND TRANSPORTATION IMPACTS

The report presents new conceptual and methodological approaches to developing models to interrelate airline schedules, airport-based employee work-shift schedules, and airport access ground traffic volumes in any time period for a given report. The results of a survey of ground travel at the Dallas/Fort Worth Regional Airport are presented and analyzed. Specific ground transportation impacts of the installation of this relatively new airport are assessed. Models are described which (1) express volumes of automobiles carrying airline passengers and visitors as a function of airline schedules and (2) transform existing or future employee work-shift schedules into estimates of incoming and outgoing employee vehicle volumes in any time interval. Preliminary research toward the development of a model to estimate public transit passenger volumes as a function of airline passenger volumes is also described.
