Firms interested in participating in the one-on-one meetings registered by identifying their interest in one of the above categories and described their capabilities and experience in meeting the criteria. Due to time restrictions, NJ TRANSIT limited one-on-one meetings to a maximum of five per category. NJ TRANSIT offered the first two one-on-one meetings per category on a first-come first-served basis. For the remaining three one-on-one meetings in each category, NJ TRANSIT determined which additional participants would be offered meetings to gain a diversity of perspectives from industry.
