Multimodal

Methodology Development for Bicycle Parking Investment Prioritization In Reserve

NJ TRANSIT rail stations operate as multimodal hubs, often with access to at least one other transit mode in addition to vehicle and non-motorized access. Over the past five years, select stations on the rail network have experienced significant increases in bicycle parking demand. This study will consist of three phases, with an end goal of developing a methodology for prioritizing locations of future bicycle parking... more »

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

As Hoboken continues to change and transportation and pedestrian needs both compliment and compete with each other, solutions to provide safe and efficient pedestrian paths should be developed. The project will provide pedestrian flow data on streets around Hoboken Terminal which will be used to coordinate with the city and facilitate design between modes within and adjacent to the terminal. Modes include: Train, light rail, ferry, PATH, bus, taxi, jitney as well as pedestrians.
