New Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, Connectivity Study

Project Overview

The New Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) is the federally funded Metropolitan Planning Organization for the northern New Jersey region, which is home to 6.6 million people and covers more than half of the state’s land area. Connectivity of the region’s multi-modal transportation network is extremely critical.  The Connectivity Study took into account the needs of disadvantaged communities and populations with limited mobility. Findings informed the NJTPA Congestion Management Process, the Regional Transportation Plan, action planning for the TNJ sustainability planning partnership, project prioritization for the Transportation Improvement Program, and other planning efforts.

Envision performed highly intensive research and GIS data-gathering in the 13-county NJTPA region. Envision’s local performance measures focused on access to rail and bus service, bicycle and pedestrian safety, road connectivity, and the freight network. The firm distance- and time-based service-area datasets, technical memorandums and custom maps, and detailed its findings in a series of presentations to NJTPA and other stakeholders.
