A. Property Acquisition/Environmental, Economic, and Social Aspects
Any property acquisition or relocation that may be required will be conducted
in accordance with the appropriate provisions of the law and regulatory requirements. As appropriate, the social, economic, environmental, and relocation
aspects of the projects will be investigated. If required under applicable laws
and regulations, interim findings may be presented at a future public hearing
and further public comment will be solicited. Prior to the implementation of
any of the projects and to the extent required, NJ TRANSIT may prepare an
Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Statement pursuant to
Federal regulations. The availability of this document will be made known by
publication in the same manner as this notice. NJ TRANSIT will adhere to all
Federal statutes and regulations affecting structures or properties eligible for or
on the National Register of Historic Places.
B. Comprehensive Planning
NJ TRANSIT projects are developed in coordination with the following planning organizations: The North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, which
is the designated Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Northeast
New Jersey urbanized area; the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission, which is the designated MPO for Camden, Mercer, Burlington, and
Gloucester counties; and the South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization, which is the designated MPO for Cumberland, Salem, Atlantic, and Cape
May counties. The MPOs are the forums for local decision-making concerning
the proposed projects. The projects are developed in consultation with local
elected officials, interested citizens, and providers of private bus services.
C. Private Enterprise Participation
Through the comprehensive planning process administered by the MPOs and
ongoing communication with NJ TRANSIT’s Office of Private Carrier Affairs,
NJ TRANSIT continues to discuss with private carriers their participation in
the capital program. In addition, NJ TRANSIT encourages, to the maximum
extent possible, the participation of the private sector in the development and
implementation of public transportation in the State of New Jersey.
D. Senior Citizens and Individuals with Disabilities
Services to be provided will be consistent with NJ TRANSIT’s program of
reduced interstate and intrastate rail and bus fares for senior citizens and
individuals with disabilities. Every reasonable effort will be made to plan and
design program elements involving facilities generally available to the public
with careful consideration of the special needs of senior citizens and individuals with disabilities.
E. Public Input
NJ TRANSIT invites public comments on the above projects and its performance. Request for additional information on NJ TRANSIT’s program of
projects, written comments and/or requests for a public hearing should be sent
to Joyce J. Zuczek, Board Secretary, Office of the Secretary to the Board, NJ
TRANSIT, One Penn Plaza East, Newark, New Jersey 07105-2246 June 29,

Based on comments received in response to this notice and information made
available, NJ TRANSIT may modify the above program before final submission
to the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and will make a determination,
pursuant to FTA regulations, as to whether a public hearing is in order. The
above list of proposed projects will become the final list of projects unless
