Project Description: This project will evaluate the feasibility of a multimodal Ground Transportation Center (GTC) at the airport terminal core, as well as an Automated People Mover (APM) connecting on and off-airport functions. The project includes stakeholder engagement, identifying, refining and evaluation of concepts, a funding plan, and implementation steps. Project Benefits: The project will study how to improve the airport’s multi-modal ground transportation access safer for pedestrians and cyclists. The study will provide recommendation for the airport’s decarbonization such as modal shifts and the increased use of electric vehicles. This planning will focus on how to reduce vehicle miles traveled in the project area as well as how to create green energy power sources for the airport. The project will implement transit-oriented development that helps existing residents and businesses, low-income and underserved communities, and minimizes displacement. The project will improve system-wise connectivity with access to transit, as well as micro-mobility and mobility on-demand for employees and airport travelers.
