Regional Freight Land Use Study

Regional Freight Land Use

NYMTC’s Regional Freight Land Use Study, recommended in Plan 2045's Regional Freight Plan, is collecting and analyzing freight and industrial land use data in the NYMTC planning area and larger multi-state metropolitan region. The study will use these data to define current, recent, and projected future land use designations and locations of freight businesses. The study is assessing potential changes in freight-related and industrial land uses across the region by developing a freight land use “typology” that identifies and describes key categories of freight land use. This typology also identifies examples across the region and describes trends and key issues specific to each category.
