Bus Ridership Data Analysis System In Reserve

Developing a comprehensive Bus Ridership Data Analysis System would allow NJ TRANSIT to better anticipate travel demand, more effectively ensure that all communities are provided equitable service, and better target its customer outreach efforts.

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

As New Jersey's demographic makeup and development patterns continue to change at a rapid pace, travel patterns and demands continue to shift as well. The State's transit agency requires a practical way to track these trends so that it can respond to them, adjust service patterns, and offer appropriate communication services to its customers. At the same time, NJ TRANSIT increasingly seeks to perform more robust analyses to ensure compliance with Title VI Civil Rights regulations prohibiting discrimination. The Bus Ridership Data Analysis System will provide the access and querying capabilities necessary to effectively safeguard against discriminatory policies and submit more precise Title VI compliance reports to the FTA.

The benefits of the effort will be several-fold. A more precise understanding of customer demographics and travel patterns will enable NJ TRANSIT to better tailor its customer communication plans. This effort will in turn lead to better information on passenger loads, payments methods, and individual bus stop usage. NJ TRANSIT can use these findings as input for forecasting models, farezone delineation efforts, and other bus service planning activities, ultimately better serving all NJ TRANSIT bus customers.

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.
