Airport ground access is one of the key determinants influencing air travellers' airport choice. The continuous growth of air travel demand and the consequent induced road congestion have encouraged the development of efficient transit systems approaching the airport, thus promoting a modal shift from individual cars to greener transport alternatives. In addition, transit systems must be resilient and reliable to air travellers, since the cost of missing a flight is high. In this paper, resilience aspects of transit systems accessing airport areas are discussed and some indexes have been set up to estimate the transit network resilience. Three different transit systems to get to a large regional Italian airport (Automated People Mover, Airport Shuttle Bus, Bus Line) are modelled and the system resilience has been estimated for each scenario by using the proposed indexes.

Abstract

Airport ground access is one of the key determinants influencing air travellers' airport choice. The continuous growth of air travel demand and the consequent induced road congestion have encouraged the development of efficient transit systems approaching the airport, thus promoting a modal shift from individual cars to greener transport alternatives. In addition, transit systems must be resilient and reliable to air travellers, since the cost of missing a flight is high. In this paper, resilience aspects of transit systems accessing airport areas are discussed and some indexes have been set up to estimate the transit network resilience. Three different transit systems to get to a large regional Italian airport (Automated People Mover, Airport Shuttle Bus, Bus Line) are modelled and the system resilience has been estimated for each scenario by using the proposed indexes.
