Get started immediately by:

The Transit Village Grant Program is designed to assist municipalities who have been formally designated as Transit Villages by the Commissioner of Transportation and the inter-agency Transit Village Task Force.

The Division of Local Aid and Economic Development’s Transit Village Grant program will award grants for non-traditional transportation-related projects to New Jersey municipalities designated as Transit Villages. These are municipalities which have made a commitment to grow in the area surrounding a transit facility. The facility can service commuter rail, bus, ferry, or light rail. Growth in areas where infrastructure is already in place and where multi-modal transportation options are readily available helps to advance vital goals of the State of New Jersey such as reduced auto-dependency and cleaner air and water.
