Mission Statement

The goal of the Bureau of Transportation Planning is to work toward a balanced transportation system for Union County. It seeks to meet the travel needs of people and goods through a coordinated intermodal transportation system.

The transportation network in Union County includes highways, bus lines, passenger and freight rail line, shuttle services, bicycle trails as well as airport and port facilities. To support this network, the Bureau conducts its own studies and partners with other entities to investigate a range of transportation planning problems with the goal of creating alternative solutions and recommendations. Funding for this work is obtained from both state and federal agencies.

The Bureau of Transportation Planning works closely with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority which is the Metropolitan Planning Organization for Northern New Jersey.
