PLANNING FOR IMPROVED TRANSPORTATION OF PEOPLE AND GOODS IN URBAN AREAS

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is responsible for certain other types of transportation as well as ocean transportation. The Port Authority makes use of various planning tools including sampling techniques to plan the facilities provided by it. Most recently, the Port Authority has assumed responsibility for the airports in the area. The Port Authority Trans Hudson Corporation took over the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad in 1962 and now operates it as the PATH rapid transit line. New cars were purchased and new or refurbished terminals are being provided, and ridership has increased.
