EVALUATION OF THE STATE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN REVISION SUBMITTED BY NEW YORK STATE IN FULFILLMENT OF THE MOYNIHAN-HOLTZMAN AMENDMENT

The objective of the study is to assist the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in reviewing and evaluating the Submission by the State of New York in response to the Moynihan-Holtzman Amendment of the 1977 Clean Air Act. The Moynihan-Holtzman Amendment specifies that any alternative to bridge tolls in the State Implementation Plan must include comprehensive plans to 'establish, expand, or improve public transportation measures to meet basic transportation needs as expeditiously as practicable'. The submission is critically examined from various viewpoints - philosophical, technical, and sociological. A frame of reference for the evaluation was constructed based on four pertinent areas--industry-wide transit performance measures and standards, local public perceptions and priorities, local transit operator and planning agencies' projects and budgets, and comparable metropolitan transit system performance and budget data.
