Moving in the Right Direction
Everyone wants to
go where they want, when they want. To work, school,
shopping and the movies, we depend on a system that
offers safe, convenient and efficient movement from
place to place.
The 12 million
residents of the New York metropolitan region make 59.6
million trips on an average weekday and 57.6 million on
the average weekend day. This places enormous demand on
the huge and complex transportation infrastructure which
connects the regionís economic, residential and
employment centers and tremendous responsibility on the
organizations that plan and maintain the system.
Together with an
interested and active community, New York Metropolitan
Transportation Council (NYMTC) members work to keep the
region moving in the right direction in order to improve
air quality, increase mobility, reduce congestion and
continue our high quality of life.
