New York City has grown dramatically in the years since 2010; this New York City Mobility Report highlights key indicators of our City’s vibrancy and how NYC DOT is supporting it through the management of our streets to facilitate high performance modes, such as travel by bus, on foot or by bicycle. This report also presents new technology and data sources that help NYC DOT better understand and manage our streets today.
Together with the Mayor’s Management Report and other regular publications through which NYC DOT reports on its efforts to reduce congestion and promote high performance modes, this New York City Mobility Report is part of NYC DOT’s efforts to develop long term, sustainable solutions to New York City’s transportation needs and improve accessibility and mobility across New York City.Download the New York City Mobility Report (pdf) Download the New York City Mobility Report in landscape format (optimized for on-screen viewing) (pdf)

Manhattan Central Business District (CBD) & Midtown Travel Speeds
NYC DOT has been using taxi GPS as a proxy for tracking travel speeds in the Manhattan CBD (south of 60th Street) since 2007. NYC DOT can now compare taxi trips and their average travel speeds south of 60th Street (depicted in green) to those only in the Midtown Core (depicted in blue).

Note: The 2019 Mobility Report includes population estimates for New York City for the years 2011 to 2017 based on pre-2018 U.S. Census Bureau population vintages. The U.S. Census Bureau subsequently changed its population estimation methodology and reduced the New York City population estimates for the years 2011 to 2017 in its 2018 population vintage.
