PRINCETON, NJ – On Monday, Princeton adopted a resolution to retain a consultant to comprehensively study the community transit program.
The governing body unanimously approved retaining the services of Nelson/Nygaard Consulting Associates Inc., for $199,460. “The primary goal is to design a comprehensive transportation program which pairs existing public transit options with complementary services not currently utilized in order to maximize access for all Princeton residents,” Deanna Stockton, Municipal Engineer and Deputy Administrator, said in a memo.
“Consideration will be given to maximum / optimize service connections with Princeton University’s TigerTransit. We also seek opportunities to incorporate micromobility and on-demand services in an equitable and cost-effective manner. The use of clean emissions vehicles will be incorporated into the study, as we look forward to receiving two electric shuttle buses later this year.” The idea for the study has been in place for several years.
Council President Mia Sacks thanked members of the Public Transit Advisory Committee for their work and also Sustainable Princeton for contributing to it. “We are going to look at how our routes can more effectively connect people to places they want to go so that we don’t have empty buses riding around every hour,” Sacks said.
