Transportation/Traffic Planning & Management

Mad Dog was worked with traffic engineers, the NY DOT, New Jersey Transit, and all three major Hudson River ferry carriers to successfully move hundreds of thousands of people in and around the tri-state area.
Over the past three years Mad Dog moved approximately 150,000 people from lower Manhattan to Governors Island via ferries departing from the Island’s Battery Maritime Building, Manhattan’s Pier 11 and/or Battery Park. Mad Dog specializes in creating detailed and comprehensive transportation and traffic management plans.

Non-interference with public access in and around a venue is of paramount importance. Mad Dog has learned how to manage events around the Governors Island’s and Liberty State Park’s public access requirements. Both public spaces were open to the general public during festival and concert events with only the concert/festival footprint being restricted to paid attendees. This, logistically, requires a great deal of additional planning, scheduling and preparation.
