  • Abstract:
    This study details the landside accessibility of the BWI airport. The accessibility of the airport is examined from each of the access facilities. Included in the study are the terminal garage, ESP parking lot, all satellite lots and terminal curbside drop-offs. The study confirms much of what most informed people “know” about landside access of the airport, but does contain some information that is surprising. The garage provides the most rapid average access followed by the ESP lot. The satellite lots provide the highest average access times. Terminal curbside drop-off is studied separately and displays a very high variance. The use of the lower roadway for morning rush hour shuttle delivery of passengers drastically reduces access times for the lots affected. This practice yields results that are quantified as well. The congestion of the upper level roadway provides a major drag on access and this is quantified for the various lots during different periods of day and days of week. In addition, forecasting techniques are used to determine what average access times might be after an increase in passenger usage of access facilities. These forecasts show that, given no changes in other conditions, all access facilities could face unacceptable access times with as little as a 25-50% increase in passenger use of the access facilities.
