New Jersey occupies the fifth smallest land area of any state and it is the most densely populated. Put those two statistics together, and the importance of being able to move with ease becomes more than a luxury. Getting from place to place as rapidly, safely, and affordably as possible is essential to New Jersey’s economy and its residents’ well-being.
Clearly, not being able to move people and goods efficiently poses a threat to the state’s prosperity and quality of life. And, yet, here we are.
The leaders chosen by our state have the responsibility to restore New Jersey’s willingness to make the public investments necessary for a top-quality transportation system and to engage the public in setting priorities and determining how to pay for them.
