  • METHODOLOGY

    During the spring and fall of 2016, Service Planning supervised and positioned personnel on all weekday/weekend revenue trains to record the number of customers traveling to and from our Western/Eastern terminals. To assure the validity of the counts, Service Planning and the Transportation Test Team recounted selected peak trains.

    DATA VARIANCES Ridership fluctuations are routinely encountered during a project of this length. Factors impacting ridership fluctuations include inclement weather, service disruptions and track work. When this occurs, trains are recounted to assure that the data is as accurate as possible. Since the primary purpose of the data is to allocate cars to demand and control seating, varying counts must be considered to select the most representative number of customers.

    EAST/WEST OF JAMAICA The book reports one number for total customers riding each train both East and West of Jamaica. Example - An eastbound Babylon train from Jamaica scheduled to make its first station stop at Rockville Centre, is counted before the train arrives at Rockville Centre. Conversely, a Babylon westbound train scheduled to make its last station stop at Rockville Centre before it arrives at Jamaica, is counted after Rockville Centre. Consequently, the number reported does not include intra-island or travel within the city terminal zone.

    STANDEES For electric trains, the capacity is assumed to be that of a M7 which averages 106 seats per car. Determination of standees is made by subtracting the number of seats from the counted number of passengers on a train. C3 equipment averages 140 seats per car.

    ABOVE SERVICE STANDARDS This number identifies trains whose customer count exceeds 95% of capacity as prescribed by the Long Island Rail Road Service Guidelines.

    PUBLICATION Service Planning Department personnel prepared all data analysis, graph and trip tables.
