  • METHODOLOGY

    During the spring and fall of 2015, Service Planning supervised and positioned personnel on allweekday/weekend revenue trains to record the number of customers traveling to and from ourWestern/Eastern terminals. To assure the validity of the counts, Service Planning and theTransportation Test Team recounted selected peak trains.

    DATA VARIANCESRidership fluctuations are routinely encountered during a project of this length. Factors impactingridership fluctuations include inclement weather, service disruptions and track work. When thisoccurs, trains are recounted to assure that the data is as accurate as possible. Since the primarypurpose of the data is to allocate cars to demand and control seating, varying counts must beconsidered to select the most representative number of customers.

    EAST/WEST OF JAMAICAThe 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 atRockville Centre, is counted before the train arrives at Rockville Centre. Conversely, a Babylonwestbound train scheduled to make its last station stop at Rockville Centre before it arrives atJamaica, is counted after Rockville Centre. Consequently, the number reported does not includeintra-island or travel within the city terminal zone.

    STANDEESFor 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 ofpassengers on a train. C3 equipment averages 140 seats per car.

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

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