    I believe allowing local options to transit and transportation funding is needed in NJ, to get away from the idea the governor controls everything and all funding has to be at state level. Other states do this, time for NJ to do this. Also need to break local zoning monoply which discourages multi-family development near transit, declare these areas of specail state significance, and allow more varied housing stock. Same for key bus corridors.

  2. Jerry Foster says:

    Since motoring is flat or declining, and the Transportation Trust Fund already spoken for, we should look to make more efficient and effective use of our existing transportation infrastructure. For example, narrowing lanes to 10 ft might provide enough room for bike lanes, while installing bike parking and/or bike share systems at stops/stations might make suburban bus rapid transit viable. We might even consider a congestion pricing program for single occupancy motor vehicles.
