Title: Best Practices in Airport Ground Transportation


1
  • Best Practices in Airport Ground
    TransportationAccent on the Positive
  • Two Curbside Allocation Case Studies
  • Presented to
  • Airport Ground Transportation Association
  • September 11, 2007

Outline
  • Introduction
  • Matching System to Operational Demand
  • DFW Curbside Allocation Study
  • LAS Curbside Allocation Study

Our Collective Challenge

Introduction
  • Getting from airport entrance to terminal
    entrance is frequently one of the most confusing
    segments of an airport passengers travel
  • Airport access/egress has become one of the most
    constrained elements of airport capacity
  • Critical that we allocate limited curbside
    roadway space efficiently to support the
    operational requirements that must be transacted
    there

5
Matching System to Operational Demand
  • Document/quantify system elements
  • Roadway and curbside configuration
  • Information system capabilities to enhance
    capacity
  • Airport business agreements
  • Document/quantify operational demand
  • Ground transportation service providers
    operations requirements
  • Passenger demand
  • Identify and remedy gaps

6
DFW Curbside Allocation Study
7
Background
  • Significant upper level roadway congestion
  • Passenger drop-off on upper level due to limited
    use of lower level
  • Second lane drop-off lengthens delay of both
    passengers and drivers
  • Curbside capacity available on lower level curb
  • Long delays and queues affect all modes
  • Private auto delays in excess of 7.3 minutes
  • Taxi delays in excess of 3.6 minutes

8
Technical Approach
  • Evaluate size and location of curbside drop off
    areas relative to demand
  • Achieve airport operational objectives
  • Quantify demand by mode
  • Use math model to evaluate curbside assignments
    based on
  • Vehicle queues
  • Vehicle delays
  • Passenger walk distance

9
Planning Day Demand
  • Fully loaded terminals
  • 4500 O/D pax

10
Quantified Curbside Demand
  • Planning day schedule to identify O/D passengers
  • Transportation mode splits to develop estimates
    of trip by ground transportation mode
  • Validated with traffic counts
  • Quantified active load/unload times
  • Macro simulation technique to quantify vehicle
    queues and delays
  • Compared various curbside allocations

11
Terminal C Lower Level Layout
12
The Solution
  • Allow taxis/limos drop-off upper level if
    requested
  • Taxis/limos pick-up at lower level
  • Supports significantly expanded taxi pick-up
    areas
  • Reduces delays for all modes
  • Private autos from 7.3 to 0.7 minutes
  • Taxis from 3.6 to 0.3 minutes
  • Reduced queues and second-lane drop-offs
  • Passenger walk distance remains the same
  • Adequate existing elevator/escalator capacity

13
LAS Curbside Allocation Study
14
Background
  • Significant roadway congestion today and no
    additional capacity until Terminal 3 commissioned
  • Taxi demand exceeds available capacity
    significantly during peak hour
  • Under-utilized areas at north side of baggage
    claim building, C-Bus Plaza and on the zero level
  • Objective Identify any additional incremental
    changes to increase capacity

15
Technical Approach
  • Develop simulation model to evaluate capacity
    benefit of
  • ConRAC
  • Reduced crosswalks
  • Two lanes at roadway exit
  • Move decision point for 2-curbside roadways
  • Creation of new taxi dispatch operation on north
    side of baggage claim building
  • Reallocation of C-Bus Plaza to WN pax taxi
    drop-off

16
Model Elements
  • Virtual operation
  • Physical configuration
  • Operational rules
  • Realistic demand
  • 24-hour
  • Airport-specific behavior
  • Model outputs
  • Animation
  • Operational performance data
