Transit Friendly Planning: A Guide for New Jersey Communities

This Guide is designed to assist community members, elected and appointed officials, members of planning and zoning boards, technical planning staff, community groups, and those who are interested in making land use decisions that assist in improving mobility and access to transit.

New guidance is provided for topics such as micromobility, curbside management, complete streets, etc. While the guidance is often general and applicable to all transit facilities, place-type specific information is provided throughout the Guide.

The Guide contains three key chapters that encompass the broad range of transit-friendly planning practices:

  • Chapter 2 – Design and Development 
  • Chapter 3 – Access, Circulation, and Parking
  • Chapter 4 – Active Transportation

The Guide is designed to cover the fundamentals of transit-friendly planning. More technical information can be found in the Additional Resources boxes located throughout the chapters.
