Access for Active Modes

Encouragement of non automobile use to/from and within the airport is important to minimizing traffic and enhancing air quality. While many airports are located within walking distance of airport office parks and employee housing, many airports cannot be accessed by pedestrians and bicyclists. The advent of new technologies like e-scooters and e-bikes is proving very popular in cities and would seem to extend threshold travel distances for these modes to/from and within airports.. How many airports now consider these modes in their master planning efforts and how might airports parent with adjacent communities to benefit from these new modes?
