The North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority has contracted with the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers to update its Regional Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan (CHSTP). This plan identifies the transportation needs of seniors, low-income people, veterans and individuals with disabilities, and provides strategies for meeting those needs. The plan is also used to prioritize funding for programs and services, and can be used to implement action on the ground.
As part of our research for developing this plan, we have created a survey to help us hear from individuals that would be impacted by this plan, such as seniors, veterans, individuals with disabilities and low-income people.
The survey takes about 5-10 minutes and is available online in two languages - English and Spanish.
