Children Share Visions for Future of Transportation

People travel by jet pack and pods in a drawing of what the future of transportation will look like.Imagine a cleaner and more efficient transportation future in which sustainable energy sources power vehicles that drive by themselves or fly, high-speed trains levitate, and personal mobility proliferates with high-tech options for getting around.  These are just a few ideas shared by the nearly 160 children from across northern and central New Jersey who participated in the NJTPA On Air: Future of Transportation Contest.

The children put on their thinking-caps and came up with innovative ideas. The contest was part of a series of outreach events aimed at gathering input for the NJTPA’s long-range plan, Plan 2050: Transportation, People, Opportunity, which is being drafted and will be adopted this fall.

Submissions were divided into four age groups, with a winner and runner-up selected in each category. You can check out a gallery of winners, semi-finalists, and other entries featured at www.NJTPA.org/OnAir.
