We consider time-dependence of dynamical transport, following a recent study of the stadium billiard in which classical transmission and reflection probabilities were shown to exhibit exponential or algebraic decays depending on the choice of the lead or "hole", raising the question of whether this feature is due to special properties of the stadium. The system considered here is much more general, having a generic mixed phase space structure, time-dependence of the dynamics, and Fermi acceleration (trajectories with unbounded velocity). We propose an efficient numerical scheme for this model, observe escape and transport effects including similar asymmetry, and also clear stretched exponential decays. (C) 2011 Elsevier B.V.
