The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is currently addressing the issue of airport access in a multi-faceted manner. Besides several transit system management measures, the Aviation Department is examining several access improvements, one of which would connect the existing rail systems, both commuter and subway, with the airports. This connection would be achieved with the construction of an Automated Guideway Transit (AGT) system linking the airports to major transportation transfer facilities.
