As part of the Master Plan to expand the
San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco Airport
Authority intended to significantly expand its off-site
long-term parking facilities (4,000 additional parking spaces)
and extend the airTrain people mover system to the expanded
long-term parking facilities to form a multi-modal center.
The objective was to require shuttle buses and public transit
buses to end their services at the multi-modal center and
to reduce on airport passenger loading needs.
CHS served as the Traffic Analysis Task Leader for the
development of a concept plan for the Multi-Modal Center.
CHS assessed traffic operational constraints both internal
to the site and at key external intersections. CHS also
assessed the needs to separate different types of vehicular
movements (for both ingress and egress), lane requirements,
potential queuing impacts, internal roadway layouts, and
pedestrian circulation (both vertical and horizontal) between
parking stalls, AirTrain stops, and bus parking areas.
