Mobility in New York City: The Factbook explores how New Yorkers move, now and in the past, using 28 transportation modes.

Two modes were excluded due to a lack of reliable data: delivery bikes and motorized delivery bikes, which are evident on streets and often illegally parked on sidewalks, but unreliably measured.

About the Rudin Center

The Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management at NYU’s Wagner school aims to strengthen our understanding of all modes of transportation through research, public forums, and educational programs. The Center draws upon faculty, students, and visiting scholars at NYU. Current areas of inquiry include:

    - The flow of people, goods and information in and through New York City

    - The impact of information technology on transportation systems

    - New approaches to financing infrastructure

    - Mobility and the mind

The Rudin Center was named in recognition of a gift from civic leader Lewis Rudin and receives support from leading firms in transportation, finance, and communications. The director of the Center is Mitchell L. Moss, Henry Hart Rice Professor of Urban Policy and Planning.
