The following table lists the other ACRP research studies currently being conducted that have rel- evance to the Airport Passenger Terminal Planning and Design Guidebook (ACRP 07-05). One of the underlying premises of ACRP 07-05 was to coordinate with and, when possible, reference and draw on significant findings and recommendations stemming from these other airport terminalârelated ACRP research projects. Table B-1 provides an overview of 16 relevant ACRP studies. B-1 A P P E N D I X B Other Pertinent ACRP Studies S.No. Project/ Publication Name Research Agency Principal Investigator 1. ACRP 11-02, Task 2/ ACRP Report 4 Ground Access to Major Airports by Public Transportation Matthew A. Coogan Matthew Coogan Objective The objectives of this task were to (1) improve the documentation of all airport ground access projects, with an emphasis on those that have occurred since the publication of Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) Report 62 in 2000; (2) improve the documentation of changes in airport access strategies since the publication of both reports with a review of recent developments in such areas as downtown check-in, automation of the check-in process, and integration with existing regional rail infrastructure; (3) provide airport managers with user-friendly, concise, and accurate documen- tation concerning trends in the area of airport ground access; and (4) support and facilitate the dissemi- nation of the latest information relative to airport managers through media such as printed reports and PowerPoint presentations to relevant professional organizations. The research created new and updated, timely documentation of the characteristics of ground access markets in a manner that builds on existing products already produced under TCRP. Table B-1.

ACRP 03-05 Passenger Space Allocation Guidelines for Planning and Design of Airport Terminals TransSolutions Gloria Bender Objective The objective of this project is to develop passenger space allocation guidelines for terminal functional areas. The guidelines are to be based on level of service (LOS) scales developed from a sample of data collected at 10 airports. The guidelines will be used by airport operators, planners, and consultants in making decisions on development of new terminals and renovation of existing facilities. Table B-1. (Continued).

ACRP 03-07 Guidebook for Measuring Performance of Automated People Mover Systems at Airports Lea + Elliott Chris Gambla Objective The objective of this research is to develop a user-friendly guidebook for measuring performance of APM systems at airports. The guidebook should identify a set of performance measures and associated data requirements for APM operators at airports to assess and improve performance, compare APM systems, and plan and design future APM systems. The performance measures should address the efficiency, effectiveness, and quality of APM systems at airports, particularly focusing on affects on APM passengers and on airport performance.

ACRP 03-06 Guidebook for Planning and Implementing Automated People Mover Systems at Airports Lea + Elliott David Little Objective The objective of this research is to prepare a comprehensive guidebook for planning and implement- ing automated people mover (APM) systems at airports. The guidebook should include, as appropri- ate, a CD-ROM with interactive tools that will assist airports to plan and implement an APM system. The scope of this research includes APM systems that provide transportation on airport grounds as well as access to remote facilities (e.g., airport parking, car rental facilities, hotels, off-airport public transportation, and other related activity centers).
