New Transit




The Situation Through the Public Involvement Program (both the general public and key area stakeholders) it became clear that there was potential for instituting some new transit routes to better serve the area by providing more direct connections to certain destinations.
The Proposal Institute the following new routes:

-- An extension of the Rutgers University Bus Line from the Livingston/Bush Campuses to the Edison train station, Route 1 and New Brunswick

-- Establish a new route on Route 1 from New Brunswick to Rahway

-- Establish a new route along Route 9 and the Garden State Parkway from Freehold to the Metropark train station and offices

The Locations Study Area
The Actions Conduct a market analysis to determine potential demand; conduct a planning & operational analysis to determine feasibility; partner with appropriate service providers and stakeholders, institute on a selected route on a trail basis; conduct follow up to determine success/failure.
Estimated Annual Cost ($Millions) $1.7
Overall Traffic Benefits Low (modeling did not consider routes individually; more detailed analysis for each route is needed to better determine benefits/cost)
Other Impacts and Considerations Significant undertaking in terms of operations, cost and coordination.
Lead (Sponsor) NJ Transit
Support KMM, County, Municipalities, Regional Malls
Possible Funding FTA, TTF
Estimated Time Frame Short Term (initial trial); Long Term (other routes)



(Note: this project is being pursued as part of the NJDOT’s Route 1 (Section 7L) project)
