Lettiere promotes Ridesharing & Carpooling Programs at NJDOT – advocates public transportation

 

Trenton – With high gas prices expected throughout the summer and congestion slowing traffic the New Jersey Department of Transportation would like to remind residents about the various ridesharing and commuting options available in the state.

“Gas prices have hit all of our residents hard this year but there are other options available,” said NJDOT Commissioner Jack Lettiere.   “Our department, along with statewide transportation management associations (TMAs), constantly evaluate and implement programs that help the working public get to their destinations safely and affordably.   It's a win-win situation that saves you money and improves the environment.”

New Jersey residents can visit the NJDOT website for information regarding ridesharing, commuting and mass transit alternatives by visiting the NJDOT website at: www.njcommuter.com .

Transportation Management Associations (TMAs) are non-profit, public/private partnerships that have been established to form partnerships with businesses and local government to provide commuter information and services.

There are eight TMAs in New Jersey including: Cross County Connection, Greater Mercer TMA, Hudson TMA, Hunterdon Area Rural Transit (HART), Keep Middlesex Moving, Meadowlink Commuter Services, Ridewise of Raritan Valley and TransOptions.
