UNION COUNTY, NJ – The 2016 Union County Transportation Master Plan is now available as a free download from the Union County website, at ucnj.org/tmp.

The Transportation Master Plan identifies the conditions, challenges and opportunities involved in moving people and goods in and around Union County. It is designed to help develop strategies for meeting current and future demands on transportation resources.

The 2016 Transportation Master Plan includes information on Union County’s demographics, population growth, commuting patterns and climate change impacts in addition to detailed descriptions of every transportation mode from bike trails to airports.

 “The 2016 Master Plan represents a significant updating of conditions and emerging trends since 2002,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “Union County is a key transportation hub for our region and our country, and this provides a valuable framework for making decisions about transportation improvements that keep up with changes in our economy and the needs of our residents, businesses and visitors.”

“Some of the most interesting tends that we are seeing are new technologies, such as autonomous cars, drones and electric vehicles,” said Vice Chairman Sergio Granados, who is a liaison to the Transportation Advisory Board and a delegate to the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA). “The rise of app-based ride services also presents new opportunities and challenges.” 

The Transportation Master Plan was developed over the course of a full year through the Bureau of Transportation Planning, a division of the Union County Department of Economic Development, under a grant from NJTPA. The process involved participation by members of the public, local employers and business groups, advocacy groups, municipal officials, and regional stakeholders including NJTPA, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, NJ Transit, and the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
