Safe Streets to Transit
In 2006, the State of New Jersey announced a comprehensive Pedestrian Safety Initiative. One element of
that initiative administered by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is the Safe Streets
to Transit (SSTT) program. This program provides funding to counties and municipalities in improving
access to transit facilities and all nodes of public transportation. The objectives of the SSTT
Annually, NJDOT announces the availability of grant funds to counties and municipalities. Application for
this program is made through the
System for Administering Grants Electronically (SAGE). All applications are reviewed, evaluated and prioritized by the Safe Street to Transit Review Committee.
A recommendation is made for final approval by the Commissioner of Transportation.
- To improve the overall safety and accessibility for mass transit riders walking to transit
- To encourage mass transit users to walk to transit stations.
- To facilitate the implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety in the
vicinity of transit facilities (approximately one-half mile for pedestrian improvements).
