Part of: Microcomputer Applications in Transportation II


This paper describes transportation models built by Wilbur Smith and Associates (WSA) as part of a study of Newark International Airport (NIA), conducted for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The study was concerned with the on-airport access requirements, specifically the links between the public highway and transportation facilities outside of the airport, and the terminal buildings. The access requirements comprise three critical groups-the circulation and access roadways, the parking facilities for various types of parking demand, and the terminal frontage where passengers transfer from vehicles to the terminals. The models were used in the analysis of all of these groups.
