New York City Holiday Traffic Alert

New York City's greatest level of traffic congestion typically occurs during the same six week period every year - from Thanksgiving until after the New Year.
The NYC Holiday Traffic Plan is designed to facilitate the movement of people in and around the City during this holiday season is modified and released.

If you have ever been in the city this time of year, you know that the NYC Holiday Traffic Plan (designed to facilitate the movement of people in and around the City) meets with very limited success.

Our chauffeurs and clients are already experiencing significantly longer travel times when traveling to/from or within New York City.

PLEASE allow extra time for travel to/from New York City and be prepared for traffic to be very, very difficult.

Gridlock Alert Days

The City has designated a number of days during the holiday season as Gridlock Alert Days which are days when significant vehicle traffic is expected. Expect that traffic delays will be substantial into and out of the city, as well as within Manhattan.

· Friday, December 7
· Thursday, December 13
· Friday, December 14
· Wednesday, December 19
· Thursday, December 20
· Friday, December 21

NYPD will focus on making this the safest holiday season ever, with the goal of reducing accidents, injuries and fatalities. Enforcement will be increased in midtown and in other key areas of the City and will focus on decreasing hazardous driving behaviors. NYPD will also focus on taxis and delivery trucks to ensure they are complying with all traffic laws.

Please remember that traffic patterns - the roads that may be traveled and our chauffeurs' ability to make turns - change during the holiday period (which lasts until after January 1, 2008) on a day-to-day basis, with no notice.

We look forward to being part of your holiday plans, and look forward to seeing you, soon.
