This project will create a practical guide that provides airport managers and other key personnel with day-to-day strategies to help combat human trafficking at airports. The need for this guidance was identified at the May 2018 ACRP insight event on economic and social sustainability.
This research would help airport practitioners understand the peer-to-peer car sharing market and its potential impacts on facilities, operations, and revenue.
In response to COVID19 but also inclusive of other contagions, airports need to understand how to plan, deploy and manage health screening.
Airports are in need of a guidance to identify key touchpoints and implementable technology solutions to institute a "touchless travel" model in order to improve security and safety for passengers, employees, and tenants.
Airports are collecting and processing a large amount of data from a traveler, including but not limited to personal identification, medical records (COVID-19 related), and biometric information. The guidebook intends to analyze the status quo of how US airports handle data privacy and to inform airport stakeholders of a comprehensive strategy to guide them towards better data privacy management.
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.
The goal of this research is to provide airports with best practices for addressing the homeless at airports.
