NJ TRANSIT Innovation Challenge

NJ TRANSIT Innovation Challenge

Thank you for interest in the NJT Innovation Challenge. The deadline for submitting proposals has passed. Please stay tuned for announcements in this space shortly.

How would you move a stadium's worth of people seamlessly and continuously between Secaucus Junction and the Meadowlands Sports and Entertainment Complex, anchored by MetLife Stadium and American Dream, seven miles away? NJ TRANSIT invites you to participate in an innovative public-private partnership to develop the innovative solutions and systems that will turn this challenge into a reality.

Frank R. Lautenberg Station at Secaucus Junction is one stop from New York Penn Station, and is served by seven NJ TRANSIT bus routes and every NJ TRANSIT rail line except the Atlantic City Line. Meadowlands Station is at the end of the Meadowlands Line right of way (ROW), which overlaps with the Main-Bergen Line and Pascack Valley Line, and includes the Hackensack Bridge river crossing. It serves American Dream, Meadowlands Race Track, and MetLife Stadium.

  • 82,500 NFL game attendees, and 52,000 concert attendees at MetLife Stadium
  • Up to 20,000 NJ TRANSIT riders for MetLife events
  • More than 30 million annual American Dream visitors
  • 500-6,000 hourly transit riders to American Dream (depending on season, day of week, and time of day)
  • 30 minute average trip time (Includes brake test + changing ends)
