NJ TRANSIT South Jersey Bus Rapid Transit (SJBRT) System
NJ TRANSIT is advancing the environmental review phase for the proposed South Jersey Bus Rapid Transit (SJBRT) System. The proposed SJBRT System will improve transit service along the Atlantic City Expressway, New Jersey Routes 42 and 55, Interstates 76 and 676, and downtown Camden and Philadelphia. Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is an enhanced bus system that uses transit priority treatments, improved facilities, and technology to provide an enhanced transit experience that is quicker and more reliable than traditional bus service.
The SJBRT System will provide a new high quality transit service between Gloucester and Camden counties and downtown Camden and Center City Philadelphia. The recommendations for the SJBRT System are from an Alternatives Analysis (AA) study completed in 2012. The AA identified the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) for the SJBRT System, which is now under environmental review. More information from the AA and about the LPA can be found at the links below under Documents and Map.
The proposed SJBRT System includes three major park and rides with approximately 1,600 new parking spaces, 3 miles of shoulder bus lanes, special BRT vehicles, new and upgraded station stops, real-time bus arrival information, off-board fare collection, and transit signal priority at selected intersections. A fact sheet on the SJBRT System can be downloaded here.
The next step to advance the SJBRT System is to complete the federal environmental review of the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) as required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). This documentation is known as an Environmental Assessment (EA). More information about the environmental review can be found here.
