Regional Interstate Transportation Network

The Port Authority has developed a profile of the Regional Interstate Transportation Network to foster awareness of trends and issues facing the critical network that connects New York City with the west-of-Hudson region. It is a snapshot of current knowledge about issues, trends, and market patterns on that system, including:

  • Interdependence of bus, passenger rail, PATH, ferry and vehicular assets to accommodate commuter and other bi-state travel;
  • Reliance on aging infrastructure that requires replacement to sustain reliable, attractive service via existing facilities;
  • Forecast growth in demand across all modes, with a shift from autos to transit for both commuting and non-work travel;
  • Inadequate capital available from historic regional and federal sources for essential Port Authority, NJ Transit, Amtrak, and Metropolitan Transportation Authority investments; and
  • New imperatives to upgrade security/resiliency and to adapt to burgeoning development surrounding critical trans-Hudson facilities.

Regional Goods Movement Action Program

Freight transportation, though not the focus of the Trans-Hudson Summit or the Profile, is equally important to the vitality of the bi-state metropolitan region. The Port Authority, New Jersey Department of Transportation and New York State Department of Transportation have developed a joint Regional Goods Movement Action Program, dubbed G-MAP, which outlines a comprehensive agenda of operational, regulatory, and investment priorities that can assure more efficient and sustainable performance of essential goods movement to support regional trade, and commerce and consumer needs. You can request more information about G-MAP, and send questions and comments to the inter-agency G-MAP team at

A summary of the G-MAP program, and its priority objectives and strategies is available here.
