New Transit Plaza
The Arts and Transit Project is carefully planned to provide a 21st-century mixed-use transit hub. The incorporation of a new transit plaza into the plan is an important environmental first step.
The transit plaza will provide a new and improved station for the Dinky, stops for the community jitney, campus shuttles and NJ TRANSIT buses, and flexibility for future mass transit technologies.
These amenities and services will promote the use of public transit as an alternative to single-passenger vehicles for commuters and visitors.
Direct access to the West Garage (Lot 7) will decrease the vehicle miles traveled by commuters who arrive from the north to park in the facility by three-quarters of a mile in each direction — and approximately 240 vehicle miles traveled daily. This, in turn, will reduce the associated carbon emissions.
Bicycle routes are being developed, as well as bike rental and storage facilities that will be provided adjacent to the transit plaza.
