Abstract

The aim of this paper is to assess the role of airport surface access strategies (ASAS) as a means of addressing the employee dependency on the private car for airport surface access trips. A wide variety of practice is in evidence through the interviews and analysis of ASAS. Short term measures and long term strategies in the main revealed a prevalence of incentive based measures, such as subsidized public transport, rewards for car sharing and improved rail and bus services. At larger airports where the access problem is likely to be more intense, there appears to be a wider and more elaborate range of schemes being utilized than those with less than 2 million terminal passengers per annum. Overall, however, there currently appears to be reluctance to use the market based approach for dealing with the problem.
