An innovative, proven new IT led approach to Airport Transportation & Parking Challenges To Assist in Creating the Sustainable Green Airport Curb Alan Willson & Jack Santa September 21, 2009
AGTA membership has its (privileges) phenomenal benefits… Spring AGTA New Orleans meeting March ‘09 Katrina – Lower 9 th Ward bus tour Lucky bus seating selection Follow-up meetings in Cleveland, Denver and London (April – August) The venture’s launch is this month: UK-based Logical Transport together with US- based Integrity Parking Systems = Logical Transportation “transportation and parking solutions for a greener future”
Logical Transport is a ‘next generation’ holistic passenger scheduling solution. It covers all aspects of Trip Booking, Vehicle and Passenger Scheduling, Routing, Vehicle Tracking, Mobile Data Communications, Financial Management & Operational Reporting. The Benefits Immediate easing of demand on parking spaces Potential to save $m’s by removing demand for expensive parking garages Increased ridership & revenue Reduced Carbon Footprint Better management information Batch Scheduling In Advance On-Demand Scheduling Flexible & semi-fixed routes Links to The University of Southampton, England What is Logical Transport Enterprise Software?
Airport Client survey issues/goals Save us money -- reduce O&M costs and related infrastructure capital costs, while maintaining or increasing customer service Right size fleet needs Mitigate wear & tear on commercial roadways Stop empty bus runs (public relations issue) Consolidate transportation systems of similar operations Consolidate airport owner (governmental agency) shuttle fleet needs of port and airport Minimize the need of shuttling employees Reduce carbon footprint
The Benefits Optimizes Demand Responsive Transportation and minimizes Fixed Route Creates matrix of variable bus capacities to best meet demand and reduce O&M Coordinates directly with in-bus mobile data terminals to by-pass language and radio airtime barriers Automatically schedules driver break, lunch & shift end based on contractual Customer Service Standards Open architecture to link with HR, DOT and Maintenance programs Moves baggage off the curb Employee Ride-Share tailored portal Batch Scheduling In Advance On-Demand Scheduling Flexible & semi-fixed routes Links to The University of Southampton, England How does LT Enterprise Software reduce demand on the airport curb and assist airport operations?
Car-sharing application for airport employee parking By re-defining parking demand LT creates the opportunity for less capital outlay at $15,000-$20,000 per space. Project savings in the multi- millions plus potential for reducing on-going transportation costs Example: Reducing parking structure 500 spaces saves: $7.5M-$10.0M
In Summary -- ‘Decision’ transportation modeling tools can produce the following significant benefits: A significant reduction in miles driven by optimally managing Demand Responsive compared to Fixed Route Scheduling Introduction of customer transportation payment fees for “non-traditional” fee-based airport shuttle services Service standards improved Reduction in fuel, maintenance costs, drivers hours and dispatch hours Reduction in carbon footprint Improved audit trail and reporting
70 million passengers annually New Terminal 5 Activity modelling through LT ‘Decision’ module Simulations highlighted the following could be attained: A significant reduction in miles driven to meet agreed SLA’s Service standards improved through improved routing Reduction in fuel, maintenance costs and drivers hours Reduction in carbon footprint Improved audit trail and reporting Heathrow Hoppa
LT Enterprise delivers a fixed timetable/fixed schedule service during peak times which see over half of passenger movements by 09:30 with more flexible ‘virtual’ scheduling during off-peak hours. Booking is simplified, through electronic kiosks located in hotel lobby’s, online or directly from the driver. The system then calculates the optimum schedule against defined business rules with drivers manifest update in ‘real- time’ through onboard MDT’s. Heathrow Hoppa
“The result is a service that is flexible to not only meet but exceed SLA’s and passenger expectation; making Heathrow ‘Hoppa’ the most convenient way to travel from your hotel to Heathrow Airport.” The system also has the ability to generate: Bar-coded ticketing Ticketing to mobile phones Real-time running information ‘Vehicle approaching’ alerts to mobile phones and fixed displays.

Better Economy Lot Shuttle Management at London Stansted The economy lot is largest surface lot in Europe, 22,000 spaces 24/7/365 SLA with 5-15 minute headway Project aims to improve customer experience through live running information All buses (33) will be GPS Tracked (economy, business, staff, airside) Customers in Car Park can call control centre to get updates At Terminal CSRs have PDAs with map of live GPS plots Other New Projects
Customer Weigh & Check-in @ Bus Stop in Off Airport Lot @ Manchester Airport Client is Go Ahead Group, through Aviance and Meteor Parking subdivisions 24/7/365 SLA with 10 minute headway Project aims to allow customers to weigh baggage at stop, adjust if necessary, check-in, call demand responsive transportation and receive live-running information All buses (16) will be MDT equipped Special weigh machine from Baggage Check Ltd Deployment Q1 2010 Other New Projects
Carbon Footprint & Management Information With all journeys and schedules logged, carbon footprint and management information is readily available including: Number of passengers carried and journey start/finish point matrix Ticket revenue Carbon emissions (and savings achieved versus conventional routing strategies) Performance standards for punctuality, journey time compliance etc
