Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Aviation Crossroads: Challenges in a Changing World


The following paper discusses the volume of trips and emissions associated with ground access vehicles to an d from California airports, and potential ways to reduce these emissions. this paper provides a method to estimate the volume of ground access vehicle trips at airports and associated emissions based on annual passenger volumes, a commonly recorded and reported airport statistic. At the same time, the report provides best available information on the current volume of airport access vehicle trips, as well as the range of VMTs and speeds associated with trips. An example is provided to show how to calculate emissions from vehicle trips based on VMT, speeds and emission factors for particular air basins. Finally, the paper investigates the potential of several employee and passenger strategies aimed at reducing trips and emissions.
