New Jersey's Transit Stations Serve as Beacon for State's Future

With the second highest share of transit usage in the U.S., a new study three years in the making assesses the development opportunities around the New Jersey's 243 transit stations.

A new report published last week by New Jersey Future, looks at the development opportunities around the state's existing transit stations (243 in total), many of which have already seen an influx of new development in recent years. The Star-Ledger's Mike Frassinelli reports, "[t]he report by the smart growth and transportation choice advocacy group shows that what is old is new again in New Jersey as towns look to the past - their train stations - to make them desirable for a new generation of commuters who have eschewed their cars."

The report, the first of its kind in New Jersey, "could help policy-makers and developers put the right kinds of incentives - such as urban hub tax credits or Transit Village designations - in the right kinds of locations and help municipalities understand the strengths and weaknesses around their transit assets, said Elaine Clisham, New Jersey Future's director of communications."
