Project Overview

Study Area

Welcome to the Northeast New Jersey Metro Mobility Study (NENJMMS) web site!

New Jersey Transit has partnered with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and Coach USA to examine the existing bus transit network and service, identify areas of improvement, and recommend options for meeting the current and future needs of the residents and employees of the greater Bergen-Passaic study area, which includes Bergen County, Passaic County, and adjacent communities located along transportation corridors.

Why is this study needed?

The bus service network and services in the greater Bergen-Passaic region have not been evaluated in more than 20 years.  Bus transit services in Bergen and Passaic counties have not been evaluated in close to 25 years. With record numbers of riders being reported on all bus routes and building on recent requests for regional transit improvements, this study will look at current and future bus transit services to identify changes that are needed to best get people where they need to go.

Building on recent local efforts and requests for transit improvements in the region, this study will focus on new and improved bus service and connections to new rail service within the corridor.  Specific goals of the study include:

How will this study be conducted?

The NENJMMS will be conducted in four phases.  Each phase will focus on New Jersey Transit and/or Coach USA routes within a specific sub-region within the study area and will identify:

For each phase, a comprehensive package of service recommendations and proposals will be developed for the short-term (0 to 2 years), mid-term (3 to 5 years), and long-term (5+ years). 

Who’s involved?

The project partners of New Jersey Transit, NJTPA, and Coach USA have established an Advisory Committee and Technical Advisory Committee for this study.  In addition, service provider and public outreach will round out the public involvement plan.
