Benefits of Transit: Making the Case that NJ TRANSIT Brings Real Value to New Jersey’s Citizens

In the current era of stagnant and even shrinking availability of funding, the ability to make the case for transportation and infrastructure financing is perhaps more important than ever. Factors of a growing and increasingly urbanized population, increasing maintenance demands, and the need to keep up with technological and safety-mandated enhancements such as positive train control (PTC), make this an especially important issue in New Jersey. The purpose of this project is to assist New Jersey Transit with developing a scope of work for a future project to quantify and document the value that NJ TRANSIT and other public transportation systems operating within the state bring to New Jersey residents and businesses.
