Safe Streets To Transit

NJDOT's Safe Streets to Transit (SSTT) program provides funding to counties and municipalities in improving access to transit facilities and all nodes of public transportation. The objectives of the SSTT program are:

  • To improve the overall safety and accessibility for mass transit riders walking to transit facilities.
  • To encourage mass transit users to walk to transit stations.
  • To facilitate the implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety in the vicinity of transit facilities (approximately one-half mile for pedestrian improvements)

The SSTT provides $5,000,000 over five years for pedestrian safety improvements in areas surrounding transit facilities. This initiative is funded from the state Transportation Trust Fund and provides $1,000,000 each year.
