SHOPPING DISTRICT TRANSPORTATION STUDY

The central portion of Bergen County, New Jersey, is unique in that it contains one of the highest concentrations of suburban retail commercial activity in the nation. To develop a recommended public transportation program for the shopping centers, a five step work program was performed. The first step involved a description of the existing transportation setting. This work element involved a review of previous studies as well as an extensive data collection effort including the conduct of numerous surveys and field observations. The next step was the development of service standards to assess the adequacy of existing transit services. These yardsticks were then used to pinpoint deficiencies in existing intermall transit services. The third study step was the formulation of several alternative transit plans and an examination of these schemes on the basis of oprating performance and other relevant criteria. As a result of the prior task, a recommended plan was identified in sufficient detail to assure its implementation. The last step involved the preparation of a report describing not only the study findings and conclusions, but also the data collection and analysis technques. The subsequent chapters of this report represent the performance of this last study effort. /Author/
