Airport planning is usually defined as a systematic process that considers the future management of airport operations. There exist different airport planning studies which are usually known as airport masterplans that include as important sections: (1) facilities; (2) financial; (3) economic; (4) environmental; (5) organizational; and (6) strategi...
Article
Retail location choice and transportation systems are strictly dependent on each other. If, from one hand, the former has clear effects on the latter (being one of the determinants of travel demand), it is interesting to assess also the reverse impact. In this respect, notwithstanding the impact of accessibility to metro stations has been investiga...
Article
The deployment of HSR services in the recent decades has been, arguably, the most significant innovation for intercity travel around the globe. HSR has brought impacts which have been widely studied in different countries in relation to the different socioeconomic, territorial and transport characteristics. This paper analyses the economic growth,...
