NJ TRANSIT Route 55/42/676 Transit Alternatives Analysis
NJ TRANSIT has recently completed the Routes 55/42/676 TRANSIT Alternatives Analysis study which analyzed improved public transit from suburban Camden and Gloucester Counties to the City of Camden and Center City Philadelphia. The study focused on improving transit service along a wide corridor that included the Atlantic City Expressway, New Jersey Routes 42 and 55, Interstates 76 and 676, and downtown Camden and Philadelphia.
As the result of an Alternatives Analysis (AA) study, NJ TRANSIT has identified a need for for transit service enhancements from Camden and Gloucester counties for travel to/from Center City Philadelphia, the City of Camden and other activity centers along the Route 55/42/676 travel corridor. A new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system has been proposed to address this need. The proposed South Jersey BRT System includes three major park/rides, special (shoulder-based) bus lanes, new stations, real-time bus arrivals information, off-board fare collection, and traffic signal priority technology at key intersections.
More information about the Locally Preferred Alternative can be found here.
The next step in advancing this project is to complete the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process by completing an Environmental Assessment and submitting documentation to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA). The Environmental Assessment is anticipated to begin in the Spring of 2013.
