Why is this a priority and what are the benefits for the State/County/City?

An in-depth study is needed to determine the possible benefits and risks that a Transportation Network Company, like Uber or Lyft, could provide to NJ TRANSIT by integration with Access Link. Integration with a TNC may have a minor or major impact on the service design and performance of Access Link, and there are various possible configuration models that can be considered.
