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?

Investing in bike parking is a key strategy for maximizing multimodal access to transit stations. Convenient and low cost (or free) parking is a tangible benefit to transit customers, and encourages bicycle use as an access mode to transit. Improved bike access also has the potential to reduce traffic congestion near stations and relieve vehicle parking demand, which can be a benefit to communities that host rail stations.

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

NJ Transit is frequently asked to assess the impact of TODs on transit ridership and parking demand. While we utilize anecdotal evidence and national examples to generate impacts from new developments, we have no firm data on the impact of these developments in New Jersey. As more redevelopment takes place adjacent to transit facilities, this data will help create better estimates of ridership changes and reductions in parking demand.
