  3. 3. Study Update 3
  4. 4. Previous Alternatives Evaluation• 14 Preliminary Long-List Alternatives Evaluated During The Fatal Flaw Screening• Alternatives 9-14 Were Fatally Flawed y• Alternatives 1-8 Were Advanced To Refined Long-List Alternatives 4
  5. 5. Refined Long-List Alternatives Long List Development 5
  6. 6. Refined Long-List Alternatives Development Long List• Alternatives Advanced to Long-List Were Further Defined Developed With M D fi d / D l d More D t il Detail• Items Considered Include: • Activity Center Connections • L dU C Land Use Compatibility tibilit • Stakeholder And Public Input p • Infrastructure And Operational Characteristics • Ridership Potential 6
  7. 7. Activity C t C A ti it Center Connections ti• Previously Identified Study Area Attractors And Generators (Activity Centers)• Activity Centers Grouped By Relative Significance 7
  8. 8. 8
  9. 9. Land Use Compatibility L dU C tibilit• Evaluated Existing Land Use Patterns• Identified Redevelopment Opportunities• Determined Potential Transit Oriented Transit-Oriented- Development (TOD) Opportunities / Constraints 9
  10. 10. Public Input P bli I t• Project Committees• Project Website • www.nassauhub.com• P bli M i Public Meetings• Origin / Destination Survey• Stated Preference Survey• One-on-One And Small Group Meetings 10
  11. 11. Infrastructure And Operational CharacteristicsI f t t A dO ti l Ch t i ti• Developed Preliminary Operating Scenarios p y p g • Running Within Mixed Traffic • Running In Exclusive Right-Of-Way• Determined Travel Times Between Key Activity y y Centers• Number Of Transfers A Key Service Factor• Identified Track / Lane Miles 11
  12. 12. Ridership Potential Rid hi P t ti l• Completed Comprehensive Origin / Destination p p g And Stated Preference Surveys• Developed Order Of Magnitude Ridership Order-Of-Magnitude Estimates• Ongoing Refinement Of Ridership Model For More Detailed Ridership Forecasting, Which Will Ultimately Lead To The Selection Of The Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) 12
  13. 13. Refined Long-List Alternatives Long List Definition 13
  14. 14. Refined Long-List of Alternatives Definition e ed o g st o te at es e t o• Alternatives Were Defined For Evaluation Against Study Goals And Objectives• Characteristics Include: • Travel Times • Number of Daily Trips • Trips Per Track/Lane Mile • Trips Per Annual Vehicle Mile • Transit Connections / Activity Centers Served 14
  15. 15. Refined Long-List Alternatives Long List Screening 15
  16. 16. Methodology• Created A Series Of Matrices Based On Defined Alternatives• Ranked Alternatives Based On: – Relative S Strength Of Ridership – Track / Lane Mileage – Annual Vehicle Mileage – Travel Times – Number Of Transfers – Transit Connections And Activity Centers Served 16
  17. 17. Screening ResultsAlternatives Identified For Advancement• Alt Alternative 2 ti• Alternative 3Alternatives Identified For Elimination• Alternative 1 • Alternative 6• Alternative 4 • Alternative 7• Alternative 5 • Alternative 8 17
