Community Transportation

Community Transportation

Community Transportation services provide more flexible transportation options. Community Transportation providers use smaller lift equipped vans and minibuses and may operate route deviation, curb to curb, door to door, or on an advance reservation basis. Services may also feed into existing mass transit bus stops, train or light rail stations. Although there are some services open to the general public, others have eligibility requirements and may be restricted to senior citizens, people with disabilities, or social services clients. Many of the services in New Jersey are funded by NJ TRANSIT with grants from the Federal Transit Administration under Sections 5307, 5310, 5311, with state funds from New Jersey's Casino Revenue fund under the Senior Citizens and Disabled Residents Transportation Assistance Program and NJ TRANSIT.

If you are a subrecipient of any grants administered by NJ TRANSIT and would like to submit ridership and maintenance reports through S-RIDES or would like to know about grants administered for Community Transportation, please visit: https://s-rides.njtransit.com/home/loginHome.aspx

For travel training opportunities contact New Jersey Travel Independence Program (NJTIP) that teaches individuals with disabilities and older adults how to use public transportation safely and independently. NJTIP customers learn how to read bus and train schedules, plan their trips, pay their fares and take safety precautions. The only cost to customers during training is paying their own fares. For more information call (848) 932-4499 or email: njtip_info@njtip.rutgers.edu . Additional information on NJTIP can be found at vtc.rutgers.edu/njtip/ website.

Contact your County at the telephone numbers or website addresses listed below and on the next page for specific transportation information, eligibility requirements, or if you need assistance, accommodation or reasonable modification with community paratransit services in your area.
