CHAPTER 8 Implementation Guidelines The planning and implementation of an offsite terminal and transportation link requires the participation of individuals with expertise in areas that may include transportation planning, environmental regulations, law, advertising/public relations, finance, accounting, facilities plan- ning, real estate, operations, parking, risk management, government relations, architecture, design, and security. A project manager should be designated to work with the property owner and other outside parties and as a point of contact and coordination for all activity within the proj- ect sponsor organization. Key members of the team should communicate and meet on a regular basis to keep the project flowing smoothly. The following is a basic checklist of work items required to implement an offsite terminal and airport transportation link. The project sponsor will assign estimated times and resources to the tasks to determine the overall timeline for a project and the interdependency of tasks. The follow- ing assumptions are made: Market analysis and ridership forecasts have been completed. A property in the market area has been identified for the offsite terminal: Project sponsor is in negotiations with property owner and Property zoning allows for this type of use or can be changed to meet project deadlines. Facility needs have been defined: project design has been completed and construction schedule has been determined. Required environmental and traffic studies have been identified, subject to successful negoti- ations with the property owner. Appropriate funds have been allocated for the project. Service characteristics of transportation link have been defined--hours of operation, frequency, fare, and vehicle type. Method for providing transportation link has been determined--self-operation, third-party operator competitive bid, or concession. Negotiation of Terms of Agreement In addition to typical terms that are developed for the purchase or lease of a property, key con- siderations in developing an agreement to lease or purchase a property for an offsite terminal include the following: Revenue diversion--if the project sponsor is an airport operator, terms of agreement cannot result in actions that would be considered revenue diversion. Examples that should be scruti- nized include the requirement for a project sponsor to make a capital investment with a life longer than the proposed lease term or revenue sharing with the property owner. 67
