Local Bus Market Phase II

NJ TRANSIT has not conducted rider surveys for approximately 50 bus routes for ten or more years. These surveys typically collect data on riders’ trip origins and destinations, alternative modes of travel, satisfaction with service, and demographic/socioeconomic characteristics. The data collected through the surveys are used for various purposes, including service planning and forecasting and Title VI analysis. As a part of the current study, NJ TRANSIT also seeks to quantify the greenhouse gas emissions impact of local buses. As a part of the Local Bus Market Analysis study, conducted between September 2015 and July 2017, a rider survey was conducted for 23 routes. As a part of the current study (Phase II), rider surveys will be conducted onboard 25 additional routes. Analysis will be undertaken to examine the characteristics of the riders, their trips, and the impact of local buses on greenhouse gas emissions.
