Intro to the Transit Friendly Planning Guide
This video introduces the 2022 Transit Friendly Planning: A Guide for New Jersey Communities. The Guide offers information and assistance to all of those interested in making land use decisions around transit facilities to improve mobility and access to transit. The Guide covers the fundamentals of transit-friendly planning and addresses emerging topics such as micromobility, curbside management, and Complete Streets. The Guide focuses on three key areas of transit-friendly planning practices: Design and Development; Access, Circulation, and Parking; and Active Transportation. The Guide is offered by the Transit Friendly Planning Program at NJ TRANSIT, our project partner at NJTOD.org.

The Transit Friendly Planning Program at NJ TRANSIT and NJTOD.org offer these five videos that explore the variety of transit friendly places in the state. These include:

The Transit Friendly Planning Program strengthens the link between public transit and communities served by NJ TRANSIT. Transit friendly planning promotes active transportation, local economic growth, placemaking, sustainable design, and efficient circulation that encourage residents to use transit for everyday trips. The Program helps to create equitable, economically resilient, and environmentally sustainable communities.
