Commissioned by GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH) and led by CTS EMBARQ Mexico, MIC has developed a study for the public transport connectivity of the New International Airport for Mexico City (NAICM).
CTS EMBARQ Mexico has developed a series of public transport lines that aim to define an efficient and sustainable NAICM connection with the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA). NAICM connection will contribute to the development of the current public transport system in the MCMA, and promote urban development of areas where transport projects are implemented.
As part of the activities, MIC has framed the projects in its context and surroundings in order to gain a full comprehension of the existing and future planning framework. Upon the construction of a benchmark analysis, in which a selection of airports has been deemed as relevant for the comparison exercise MIC has explored the time coverage provided by the proposed airport connections. The analysis took advantage of GIS based applications which helped interpreting the instances potentially affecting the NAIMC from a transport standpoint. This activity allowed to evaluate the site accessibility level, the public transport coverage, as well as the overall network connectivity by means of isochrone accessibility analysis in order to have a more fine grain understanding of the service provided by the selected airport connections. More specifically, the objective was also to study the existing and proposed mobility context for all layers of transportation, focusing in particular on the accessibility of different type of users (airport passengers and employees) to and from the airport.
