PLANNING FOR AIRPORT ACCESS: AN ANALYSIS OF THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
A multidisciplinary systems analysis of airport access to the major airports of the San Francisco Bay Area was made. Basically, it was found that there is no major airport access problem. The argument of the report is that commonly perceived airport access problems are either minor inconvenience magnified out of proportion by a combination of the traveler's unreasonable expectations, anxiety over flight departure and lack of information, or not subject to solutions which do not consider the entire urban transit system. Nine specific conclusions and recommendations for improvement are presented and discussed.
