The methodology for the Trans-Hudson trip forecast is described and the results of the forecasting are presented in tabular form. The Port Authority, which monitors data on population, labor force and jobs in the region, conducted O&D surveys in '79-'81 and in '83-'84. This revealed that growth in trips was due to large growth in CBD jobs, small growth in NYC labor force, and excess labor force in the suburbs. Tabulated results are presented of the following: population, labor force, and job forecasts by county; regional work trip matrices; Trans-Hudson trips by county to CBD (central business district); Trans-Hudson trips to CBD and non-CBD by small zone; forecasted Trans-Hudson trips to CBD by small zone; Trans-Hudson trip distribution within the CBD; full small area matrices of Trans-Hudson trips; Trans-Hudson trips by transportation corridor; and Trans-Hudson trip trends - historical and forecasted. Maps are included of the small zones west of the Hudson, of the growth of Trans-Hudson trips to CBD, of small zones in Manhattan CBD, and of transportation corridors west of the Hudson.
