The Airport. Lambert–St. Louis International Airport is located about 16 miles from the center of St. Louis. The airport served about 14.7 MAP in 2005; of these, some 4.8 million were originating passengers. Under conditions of no highway congestion, the driving time from the airport to downtown is 21 minutes. The airport currently attracts about 0.3 million travelers per year who use public, high-occupancy modes to the airport. Connections at the Airport. The St. Louis light rail has been integrated into the interior spaces of the airport’s Main Terminal; the traveler does not need to leave the terminal to access the rail system. A second station has been built to serve the East Terminal currently used by Southwest Airlines. Rail. The light rail at St. Louis airport attracts about 3% of airline passengers, as determined from calculations, not surveys. About 2,400 transit riders board at the airport station daily, but no market survey has been undertaken concerning the split between airline passengers and employees. Both airport and transit officials, however, suggest that about one-third of the riders are airline passengers, with most of the rest airport employees. These airport and transit officials have reported that nearby park-and-ride facilities have been filling up with airport employees anxious to avoid an airport parking charge recently established for most airport employees. Bus/Van. Service to a downtown hotel loop is provided by Gem Shuttle/Trans Express Transportation. Two bus companies provide traditional coach service to the airport, and three companies provide additional van services. Cleveland (6% Market Share) U.S. Rank 27
