ACRP LRD 39 3 UPDATED SURVEY OF LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLICABLE TO AIRPORT COMMERCIAL GROUND TRANSPORTATION Carlos Sun, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO. SUMMARY This survey is a summary of the airport commercial ground transportation laws and regulations in the United States. This legal digest provides an overview of the current regulatory framework for airport practitioners, including airport attorneys, managers, operators, and ground transportation providers. This is an update of the 2008 ACRP LRD 3: Survey of Laws and Regu- lations Applicable to Airport Commercial Ground Transporta- tion. One significant change related to airport ground transpor- tation in the past decade involves the advent of affordable and powerful computing technology in the form of smart phones and the associated rise of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs). The current updated legal digest delves into the evolu- tion of ground transportation regulatory framework in adapting to this rapidly increasing form of ground transportation. Scope As a survey of airports across the United States, this digest is not intended to be an exhaustive compilation of all laws and regulations related to commercial ground transportation. There are a wide range of applicable laws and regulations stemming from all levels of government, including federal, state, county, municipal, and airport. Unlike surface transportation, where states have the primary jurisdiction, air transportation has sig- nificant federal jurisdiction related to the national airspace and interstate commerce. Nor is the survey a comprehensive review of all primary commercial airports in the National Plan of Inte- grated Airport Systems (NPIAS).1 The NPIAS contains 3,328 1 NATIONAL PLAN OF INTEGRATED AIRPORT SYSTEMS (NPIAS) 2019- 2023, (Federal Aviation Administration, 2018). airports (3,321 existing and 7 proposed). Three-hundred eighty (380) of these are primary airports (30 large hubs, 31 medium hubs, 72 small hubs, and 247 nonhub primary commercial air- ports). The 380 primary airports are those with scheduled air carrier service of 10,000 or more enplanements. The primary airports account for 99.83% of the total enplanements in the United States. The hub classification, according to percentage of total U.S. passenger enplanement, is as follows: large accounts for 1% or more, medium accounts for 0.25% to 1%, small ac- counts for 0.05% to 0.25%, and nonhub accounts for less than 0.05%. This survey is a highlight of the most important laws and regulations from various agencies as well as a representative sample of primary commercial airports from all four hub classi- fications. The current report covers some of the busiest airports in the United States, but also airports with moderate passenger activity that offer significant commercial ground transportation service. As shown in Table 1, the 49 airports surveyed include 26 large, 8 medium, 9 small, and 6 nonhub airports. Columns H in Table 1 corresponds to the hub designation of L for large, M for medium, S for small, and N for nonhub. The 49 airports involve 44 states. Even the states without a surveyed airport are often represented by airports in the metropolitan region from another state. For example, Kansas City International Airport services the bi-state metropolitan region of Kansas and Missouri, and Philadelphia International Airport services the tri-state re- gion, specifically the Delaware River Valley. The wide cover- age in the present LRD, both in terms of NPIAS airport type and geography, makes this LRD applicable to all airports where there is significant commercial ground transportation activity. This digest covers all the traditional modes of commercial ground transportation at airports, including taxicabs, courtesy vehicles, limousines, charter buses, and public transit. This Table 1.
