NJT Transit-Friendly Planning

New Jersey Transit

Transit Stop TOD Screening/Prioritization Tool

New Jersey Transit (“NJT”) initiated a planning initiative for its Transit Friendly development program throughout its rail system.  Through a multi-year contract, RESGroup was hired as part of a team to create an analytical tool for identifying station area locations for immediate action on “demonstration sites”, as well as creating a tool for ongoing monitoring of long-term potential development opportunity areas.  A market study process was created to help NJT understand TOD potential at each station under consideration.  The second phase of work included an evaluation of development potential and likely impacts on the local community at demonstration sites near the Orange and East Orange stations.
