An attempt has been made to study the feasibility of a demonstration program to improve the accessibility of Dulles International Airport through operational and capital improvements to the existing public mass transit system. The program proposed to meet this objective has two phases: a non-capital intensive, immediate action program to be implemented within one year; and a longer range capital intensive demonstration program to be implemented by 1980 and capable of satisfying the 1985 travel demand. The study is also designed to evaluate the potential for improving commuter travel within the Dulles-Washington, D.C., corridor through the use of the airport's mass transit access system, right-of-way, and/or vehicles. An immediate action program and a longer range demonstration program were also developed to carry out this objective.
