URBAN CORRIDOR DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM. CORRIDOR EVALUATION

Manhattan CBD - North Jersey Corridorwide Improvements have been significant. Over the course of the Urban Corridor Demonstration Program in the Manhattan CBD-North Jersey Corridor millions of vehicle miles have been saved per year by fringe parking, 25-37 million passenger hours per year have been saved by the exclusive bus lane, and approximately 625,000 passengers annually enjoy a more direct and faster trip into the CBD because of the bus reroutes. Other projects include I-495 bus priority traffic management system, Route 3 BPTMS and traffic control demonstrations, and automatic bus identification. Coordination among numerous agencies was involved with each project. Fringe parking, exclusive bus lanes, and the rerouting of buses in Midtown Manhattan CBD to better distribute travelers to and from the Port Authority Bus Terminal amounted to a successful experiment in bus passenger carrying effectiveness.
