Abstract

When considering mode choice criterion, departing air passengers allow a period of time, additional to the time allowance predicted for their ground access to airports. This additional time is commonly known as a “safety margin”. The safety margin allowance increases the possibility of arriving at the airport no later than passengers’ preferred arrival times. In this paper,with the use of survey data collected from departing air passengers in Hong Kong International Airport, the effects of safety margin allowances on ground access mode choices are quantified. The model results indicated that Airport Express passengers place a significantly higher value of safety margin on airport ground access trip.
