Atlanta's New Central Passenger Terminal Complex
When the new Central Passenger Terminal Complex at the Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport opens in September, 1980, it will be the largest airport terminal complex in the world....

Air Terminal Design: Decentralization and Shape
A computerized method has been developed that takes operating rules and traffic data and transforms them into theoretical concepts. These concepts are characterized by two indices—decentralization...

First Line of Atlanta's New Transit System Opens
With lessons learned from San Francisco and Washington, D.C., Atlanta hopes to avoid some of the problems encountered by those cities in building and operating its new transit system....

Aerial Passenger Tramway Codes and Standards

Tandem-Queue Algorithm for Airport User Flows
A method is presented for relating, using simple functional notation, the cumulative arrival patterns of passengers at two successive sets of airport processing components. An algorithm...

Model of Airport Employee Access Traffic
Previous research on airport access has not focused adequate attention on airport employee traffic considering that airports employ nearly one person per daily enplaned passenger. This...

Airfield Pavement Evaluation — The Airline View
Plate bearing tests to evaluate airfield pavements may close airfield operating surfaces for extended periods, causing costly air traffic delays. Nondestructive techniques for pavement...

Model of Aircraft Passenger Acceptance
A technique for evaluating passenger acceptance of a transportation system's environment has been developed. This includes a model of passenger reaction to the vehicle, as...

Designing Airport Terminals for Transfer Passengers
This paper examines the question of how airport terminals ought to be designed to serve transfer passengers, an issue that designers generally neglect. The first section provides a procedure...

Energy Impacts on Passenger Transportation

Passenger Ferry Terminals on San Francisco Bay

Airport Access Volumes From Airline Schedules
A methodology is described for estimating air passenger and visitor automobile traffic volumes at an airport as a function of an airline flight time. The methodology allows for the estimation...

Future CTOL Aircraft Characteristics
The Airport Facilities Branch, Canadian Air Transportation Administration, Transport Canada, commissioned this study to update aircraft characteristics. The aircraft characteristics documented...

Airport Choice in Low Demand Region
Air traveling by residents of the core area of St. Lawrence County, New York is characterized by long ground access distance and is subjected to influences by airports across the border...

The Resurgence of Light Rail Transit
With the development of a new Standard Light Rail Vehicle there has been an increased interest in light rail systems for community mass transit. Light Rail Transit systems can be tailored...

Air Passenger Handling Facilities: Future Planning-Design Impacts
The Committee on Terminal Facilities has developed material which has as its primary objective the identification, organization, and documentation of the diversified range of future impact...

Air Pollution Impact of Railroad Electrification
The potential air pollutant emission reductions and energy savings were evaluated for freight and passenger traffic diversion from existing modes to electrified railroad in the Houston-Dallas...

Airport Choice: An Empirical Study
As a determinant of the air passenger's choice of airport, ground accessibility plays a more dominant role than air carrier level-of-service. Thus, the use of differential...

Energy Consumption in Vehicle Manufacture
The recent fuel shortages have clearly demonstrated the need to be more concerned with the comparative energy efficiencies of various modes of transportation. A number of authors have...

Method for Designing Airport Terminal Concepts
Much design effort in airport planning is expended on terminal concept development. Such a method has been developed and is introduced. It considers the terminal as a system of basic facilities...
