Synthesis of Information Related to Airport Practices. Topic S06-08. Exploring Airport Employee Commuting and Transportation Needs

Increasingly, airports are facing challenges attracting and maintaining a consistent workforce. Among the challenges an airport faces are limited information on its workforce, and the cost, availability, and mode of transportation the employee uses to commute to and from work. Several airports have organized Transportation Management Associations (TMAs) which provide commuter assistance, especially for employees whose early morning trips begin before the region's transit system is operating. The purpose of this research would be to document why employees choose their mode of transportation when commuting to and from the airport, and how airports seek to influence the employees’ commuting decisions. This synthesis would assist airport management at a wide variety of U.S. airports. The objective of this synthesis is to describe how airport employees commute to and from work, and how airports are seeking to influence employee transportation decisions. The audience for this report is airport management and staff seeking to understand, plan for, and accommodate the transportation commute needs of airport employees.
