Notes 

These selected measures are provisional indicators of transportation activity and have not been reviewed for representativeness or other aspects of statistical quality. Additional measures will be added as they become available.

  • Vessels: Measured by freight vessels in select anchorages/pilotages.
  • MTA: Data reported on a weekly basis from Saturday to Friday. These are adjusted numbers which are obtained by normalizing only the outliers using historical trends. This adjustment affected less than 0.7% of the data.
  • WMATA: Data for 2020 is PRELIMINARY. Ridership is compared to the equivalent calendar day in 2019.
  • BART: Ridership is compared to projected ridership, based on pre-pandemic BART budgeting, for the same period.
