AIRPORT ACCESS IN CANADA

ALTHOUGH COMMERCIAL AVIATION IN CANADA IS PRIMARILY OF INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL SIGNIFICANCE, MANY OF ITS EFFECTS ARE OF DIRECT LOCAL CONCERN. THE PROBLEM OF GROUND TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM AIRPORTS IS ONE OF THESE LOCAL CONCERNS. THIS STUDY EVALUATES THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUND ACCESS TO CANADIAN AIRPORTS, PROVIDES A BASIS FOR FUTURE DECISIONS AND DEFINES PRIORITIES WITHIN THE OVERALL FRAMEWORK OF URBAN AND NATIONAL TRANSPORTATION RESOURCE ALLOCATION AND IMPROVEMENTS. THE STUDY HAS TWO MAIN FOCI. FIRST, IT EXAMINES IF AND TO WHAT DEGREE AIRPORT ACCESS IN CANADA IS UNDERSTOOD AS A PROBLEM BY THE VARIOUS LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT. THE ANALYSIS IS BASED UPON THREE SURVEYS CONDUCTED FOR THIS STUDY. SECOND, A CONCEPTUAL MODEL IS OUTLINED TO DESCRIBE AND QUANTIFY THE ELEMENTS OF THE AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, MOST PARTICULARLY THE ACCESS PORTION. THESE PARAMETERS AND THE RANGES OF THEIR VALUES ARE DISCUSSED IN THE LIGHT OF THE EXISTING LITERATURE AND EMPIRICAL STUDIES ON THE SUBJECT. ALSO TREATED IS THE ROLE OF PUBLIC TRANSIT AS A GROUND ACCESS MODE.
