Data Collection Plan For the New York Best Practice Model

Since 2012 – present(Every year)

As part of the updating of the New York Best Practice Model (NYBPM) developed by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC), New York City Department of Transportation (NYC DOT) collects both screenline traffic volumes and screenline vehicle classification data. The NYBPM database consists of about 2,200 highway network link records and covers the ten New York counties that comprise the NYMTC area, and all interstate crossings between Connecticut, New York and New Jersey. Since 2012, ATI has been performing counts for NYBPM annually. During each program year, ATI installed over 600 Automatic Traffic Recorders (ATRs) for continuous 9 day period, and performed 119 Vehicle Classification Counts (VCC) for a continuous 24 hour video recording. Over the course of few years, ATI greatly improved video recording quality and today uses HD cameras for data collection.
