MOBILITY OF PEOPLE AND GOODS IN THE URBAN ENVIRONMENT FACILITATION OF URBAN GOODS MOVEMENT

Field data and interviews performed indicate that goods movement in the city center is constrained by several factors, and distinct goods-movement patterns were identified and documented. For typical downtown land uses, goods activity, truck activity, internal distribution and other facets of goods distribution were evaluated. These evaluations documented several aspects of downtown goods movement including: trip generation rates, operating characteristics, parking patterns, dwell-time components, goods descriptions, delays, arrival patterns, engine idling, and others. Preliminary procedures are included to suggest methods of using the data in this report to facilitate local goods movement in downtown areas.
