MMU developed a digital simulation model for Manchester Airport to test different modes of transport: future CAV rapid personal transport system against the existing Taxi system. Findings highlighted a distinct performance variance favouring different stakeholders. The existing Taxi system favoured operator interest such as minimising dwell time, deadhead time, average travel time and overall vehicle distance travelled. The CAV system seemed to favour the user and city stakeholders with better performance in measures such as user wait time, number of passengers waiting, total CO2 emissions and CO2 emissions per passenger.
