Update ACRP Report 40: Airport Curbside and Terminal Area Roadway Operations to reflect latest practice and focus on curbside/roadway management..
The goal of this research is to provide airports with best practices for addressing the homeless at airports.
New ways to ride from/to the airport are emerging: micromobility, autonomous and connected vehicles, electric vehicles, Hyperloop, underground electric skates, urban air mobility, etc. Old ways are being recycled and improved, such as (but not limited to) bus rapid transit (BRT), light rail, high speed rail (e.g., Brigthline station at MCO), etc.

As electric vehicles reach the consumer mainstream and decarbonization moves energy loads from natural gas to electricity, airports will be under increasing pressure to upgrade their electrical capacity. This research paper would explore the potential use of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology as a local microgrid, offsetting peak electrical demand and providing increased levels of electrical system redundancy.
In response to COVID19 but also inclusive of other contagions, airports need to understand how to plan, deploy and manage health screening.
