North Jersey's robust transportation network is a major economic driver. Whether it’s access to the broader region or internal connections within North Jersey, a reliable and connected transportation system enables people to contribute positively to the state’s economy. During the past couple of decades, North Jersey has seen shifts in demand toward public transit and active transportation. At the same time, the surge in online retail sales has increased freight and delivery use of our transportation infrastructure. And while overall transit ridership declined during the COVID-19 pandemic, local transit services proved critical for getting essential workers to their jobs. The pandemic also demonstrated the need for streets to accommodate people and commerce, rather than just cars. Our third TPA Tuesdays symposium will further explore the ways in which transportation drives North Jersey's economy. We’ll also look at the importance of strategic transportation investments for the post-pandemic economic recovery and for the region’s economic expansion during the next 30 years.
