Goals and objectives

A set of goals for this Study, with their respective objectives, was identified based on the purpose and need for transit improvements in the Nassau Hub. These goals and objectives may be refined over the course of the Study, based on input and feedback from stakeholders including the public, government agencies and other interested parties.

 

goal 1

Develop transit improvements that will provide additional realistic and practical travel options to, from and within the Study Area and help mitigate congestion on roadways.

Objectives :

    • Expand transportation system capacity, routes, and connectivity.
    • Increase travel choice options.
    • Improve travel time reliability.
    • Improve transit access.
    • Identify locations where service expansion and contraction is required.
    • Better integrate LIRR into local and regional travel options.
    • Provide better off-peak and reverse-peak transit options.
    • Improve operational efficiency

goal 2

Develop transit improvements that will enhance mobility to, from and within the Study Area in a cost-effective manner.

Objectives :

    • Improve transit access.
    • Identify locations where service expansion and contraction is required.
    • Better integrate LIRR into local and regional travel options.
    • Provide better off-peak and reverse-peak transit options.
    • Improve operational efficiency

goal 3

Develop transit improvements that will enhance mobility to, from and within the Study Area in a cost-effective manner.

Objectives :

    • Improve transit access.
    • Support transit-oriented economic development opportunities and land use plans.

goal 4

Develop transit improvements that enhance quality of life and minimize adverse environmental impact.

Objectives :

    • Provide better off-peak and reverse-peak transit options.
    • Support transit-oriented economic development opportunities and land use plans.
    • Improve environmental quality

Goal 5 :

Develop transit improvements that support and complement transit friendly and economically sustainable parking strategies.

Objectives :

    • Support transit-oriented economic development opportunities and land use plans.
    • Improve transit access.
    • Expand transportation system capacity, routes, and connectivity.

These goals and objectives will serve as the basis for developing the evaluation criteria and evaluation measures that will be used to screen the project alternatives, ultimately leading to the selection of a locally preferred alternative.
