Update ACRP Report 40: Airport Curbside and Terminal Area Roadway Operations to reflect latest practice and focus on curbside/roadway management..
Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)
ACRP Report 40: Airport Curbside and Terminal Area Roadway Operations was published in 2010. Since that time, new and emerging ground access trends (e.g., TNCs, driverless vehicles) have emerged. In addition, the focus of Report 40 was on data gathering and analysis, and not on planning, modifying, and operating roadways and curbsides to achieve maximum efficiency, safety, security, and customer service. Curbs must accommodate various modes of access/egress, ranging from single occupant vehicles to large buses. There are also important security issues at terminal curbsides. Since the cost of adding curb can be significant (e.g., adding a second level), airports would benefit from identifying best practices for curb management to increase existing capacity.
Approach (Describe in general terms the steps you think are needed to achieve the objective.)
To update the guidebook, it is anticipated the research will require stakeholder outreach (survey, focus groups) to identify best practices. The outreach should include input from customers, law enforcement, and transportation provides) to identify successful practices.
Cost Estimate and Backup (Provide a cost estimate and support for how you arrived at the estimate.)
$500,000. Assume the cost of in-person interviews, site visits and focus groups will be a significant cost.
Related Research - List related ACRP and other industry research; describe gaps (see link to Research Roadmaps above), and describe how your idea would address these gaps. This is a critical element of a synthesis topic submission.
ACRP Report 40 covers analyzing roadway and curbside operations, yet provides limited guidance on maximizing current roadway and curbside facilities..
