A more realistic review of the so-called ground transportation problem as it influences and relates to air travel suggests that the ground access-travel time and effort can be reduced more effectively by alteration of air technologies, by airport specialization and by the relocation of air terminals than by modification, expansion or development of ground transport systems. This may be done by locating smaller-scale airports served by V/STOL aircraft for trips under 800 miles closer to travelers homes or places of business. High frequency and direct access should be provided at both ends of the trip at airports which include facilities for ground and water transportation.
