This technical report is an outgrowth of a study requested by Congress to determine the extent to which inadequate (off-airport) ground access to airports constrains airport capacity and air travel. Case studies of sixteen commercial airports of various sizes and locales were prepared. The report describes these case studies and includes the following: (1) An identification and projection of the access capacity of representative airports; (2) An determination as to whether access needs at these airports are adequately considered in the planning process; (3) An identification of potential solutions to noted access problems; and (4) An identification of projects for consideration by local public bodies and planning authorities which may improve airport access in selected cases. Also included is a 1978 update of the ground access to airports study prepared by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). (Author)
