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.

Dr. James W. Hughes, University Professor and Dean Emeritus of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University, gave a presentation on 2021's Long Recovery Crawl: Coronavirus-Driven Disruptions and Upheavals Reshaping New Jersey at the NJTPA Board of Trustees meeting on January 11, 2021.

Access to transportation impacts lives and personal outcomes on many levels. Insufficient access means people cannot reliably get to work, school, healthcare, social services, or other destinations. Government institutions must work to address the effects of past practices that perpetuated racism and segregation. It’s no longer enough to go through the motions; it’s time for a paradigm shift in which government leaders ask themselves how transportation policies and investments impact the systems’ most vulnerable travelers. And, decision-making must promote positive change for everyone in every community. The second symposium in our TPA Tuesdays features transportation and planning thought leaders who explore the issue of advancing equitable transportation systems.

This video summarizes the Active Transportation background paper developed for Plan 2050: Transportation, People, Opportunity.
