Spring is coming... and so is the AGTA Spring Meeting

READY FOR THE FUTURE?
The Joule Hotel Dallas, TX
March 26-29, 2017

Make plans now to join us in Dallas for what promises to be an exciting opportunity to bring yourself and your airport or company up to task for all the innovations coming our way in airport ground transportation. A short sampling of meeting topics is listed below but please keep your eye out for a detailed meeting program to be posted later this month. AGTA promises to offer topics that will keep you informed, prepared and adaptable for the changes already affecting our airports. Planned meeting discussions include the following topics:

  • Do airports really make money from ride hailing fees or are they losing money when airport parking and car rental users are diverted to TNC car services?
  • What are other airports doing? Learn how to handle the rising number of Uber, Lyft and other ride hailing personal cars that now crowd the curb at many large airports. Where to place ride-hail vehicles, what to charge them for using airport facilities, do they need their own holding lot?
  • Where do high occupancy shuttles, vans, buses now belong on the curb? Should they get special pickup and drop-off access to the curb due to environmental and efficiency in utilizing curb space?
  • Should private vehicles be charged as a mechanism to avoid airport curb congestion?
  • How soon will driverless shuttles be here and how much can airport parking and car rental companies save by using driverless shuttles
  • Is it time to rethink AVI technologies and move on to geo-coding and other wireless digital systems?
  • What electronic customer service features should airports require of their ground transportation operators?

Call the Reservations Desk at The Joule 214-748-1300 and refer to the AGTA Spring Conference to receive the preferred AGTA rate of $209, available 3 days prior to and after the AGTA conference. We hope to see you soon in Dallas!
