Ten million people move in, out and through New York every day using 28 distinct modes of transportation, from bikes to buses, ferries to feet. This site, created by the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation, highlights the scope of the New York transportation environment.

Several key trends are important to explore:

New Yorkers are increasingly traveling by a variety of modes of transportation. Subway ridership has reached its highest levels since 1950, bike ridership is growing, motorcycle sales in Brooklyn are skyrocketing and vehicular use is becoming more specialized.

Commuting hours are expanding: New Yorkers still travel in the morning and evening rush hours, and weekend and late night travel is also growing. The information economy, flexible schedules of Millennials, and ability to travel safely at night have boosted off-peak travel.

The diversity of transportation modes makes New York move. When people can choose among subways, taxis, ferries, bikes and more, they can optimize their selections of jobs, entertainment, schools, healthcare and social events. Diversity in mobility makes New York more livable and productive.

Click around the site to learn more about each mode; it's a work in progress, so check back for updates.
