Recognizing the importance of active transportation options such as walking and biking, the NJTPA developed a Regional Active Transportation Plan (ATP) for its 13-county northern and central New Jersey region. While conceptual, the ATP provides a blueprint to create a safe, comfortable, and connected network for walking and biking across the region.
The ATP identifies a network of potential on- and off-road routes that connect existing trails and destinations such as downtowns and parks. The network was created through public and stakeholder outreach as well as analysis of data. It establishes a common framework for all jurisdictions—municipal, county, and state—to refer to when creating active transportation facilities. You can click on a county on the map below to access county-by-county assessments and recommendations.
Ongoing Support for Implementation: The NJTPA will support ATP implementation by providing an interactive mapping tool and sharing ATP data. These resources can help state, county and municipal partners further explore active transportation needs and select or prioritize implementation efforts that align with the regional network. The NJTPA will also continue providing a range of technical assistance programs to support counties and municipalities in advancing regional active transportation priorities—whether through assisting with short term demonstration projects, funding related planning studies, or delivering long term capital improvement projects.
