Changing airport employee travel behaviour: the role of airport surface access strategies
AbstractEmployee travel to airports is currently dominated by the private car. Road capacity has become a constraint requiring serious action if airports are to accommodate the trebling of air traffic, forecast by 2030. The aim of this paper is to assess the UK Government's policy initiative of making airports produce airport surface access strategies (ASAS's) as a means of addressing employee dependency on the private car for airport trips. A survey of ASAS's and informal interviews with airport managers reveal a wide variety of incentive based measures for dealing with the problem and a need for airports to share best practice.
