LAX Project

Why Tom Bradley ?
  • It's an international terminal. Therefore, it is very busy most of the time, and there are enough passengers to sample for our project.
what was measured
What was measured …..
  • Loading/Unloading time
  • Number of cars passing by vs. stopping at departure
  • Means of transportation (taxi, bus, shuttle, private car)
  • Reason of trip (vacation vs. business)
  • Local vs. visiting passengers
what we found out
What we found out…
  • Taxis do not create traffic. In fact, private cars create the traffic because:
    • They are lost
    • Loading/unloading takes longer
      • Saying good bye to their relatives (hugging, emotions, etc.) which is time consuming
  • Also, taxis have specific spots to load/unload passengers and luggages

methodology

  • Measured loading and unloading time.
  • Survey with passengers to establish what determines decision in their choice of transportation.
  • Quantitative Measures- Anova, Binomial, F-test, Inference about Pairs of treatment Means.

slide22

Box plot comparison of 50 observations based on three different categories

  • Passengers (groups) who took a taxi vs. passengers who other vehicles
  • Local passenger (groups) vs. visitors
  • Business travelers vs. leisure travelers (count of parties)
conclusion
Conclusion
  • No conclusion on why travelers chose to take taxi
  • Failed to find a relationship between
    • Locals vs. Visitors
    • Business vs. Leisure
    • Taxi Cab vs. Other Transportations
  • Thus, these factors do not matter
  • Private cars are the most counted to load/unload passengers
  • Private vehicles take a significantly longer time to load and unload
  • Traffic congestion in LAX is mainly caused by private cars not taxi cabs
recommendations
Recommendations
  • Increase uniformed personnel/traffic coordinators
  • Limit the loading and unloading time at curbside to 2 minutes
  • Strictly enforce traffic regulations
  • Set up electronic signs
  • Send out traffic alerts within LAX
  • Provide alternate location for passengers in tour groups
  • Provide 15 minutes free parking
