TRANSPORTATION PLANNING ISSUES--HOTEL/CASINO DISTRICT--ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY. SESSION 19

Travel habits of Atlantic City casino visitors are substantially different from earlier predictions. Proximity to major population centers of eastern USA, together with relatively short travel distances from home to the casinos, encourages bus and private auto use as the two primary travel modes. Constant monitoring of times of travel, modal choice, vehicle occupancies, parking plans and charges for parking becomes necessary to respond to the demands placed upon the highway, road and parking systems in this rapidly changing urban area. Solutions to the transportation problems are complex and capital-intensive. A cooperative governmental-private business relationship must exist to produce results. Financial options need to be explored, and government safeguards must be developed to ensure private sector participation.
