The study treats the initial relocation of a risk population of 11.33 million persons and daily commuting by 0.91 million essential workers in the New York metropolitan area. A base case is described. Transportation resources are identified. Transportation capacity is estimated for air, water, rail, automobile, and bus transportation. Transportation operations and allocations of risk population groups to host areas are analyzed in trial solutions, and a base solution and move-table analysis are described. Relocation journeys are started by 95 of the population within 3.0 days and by the remainder at 3.3 days. Alternative cases treat changes in policies, conditions and constraints. Probable changes in duration of operations and transportation burdens are discussed. Substantial improvements over the base case appear possible. Author
