Rutgers U., NJ Transit educate disabled to ride system

Posted on February 28, 2014

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Rutgers University and NJ Transit collaborated to form New Jersey Travel Independence Program (NJTIP), which trains people with disabilities to use trains, buses and light rail in seven North Jersey counties: Essex, Union, Morris, Somerset, Bergen, Passaic and Hudson, according to Rutgers Today.

Based at the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers’ Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, NJTIP offers travel instruction, individually or in small-group settings. With a referral from NJ Transit’s Access Link Program, people on the autism spectrum, people with Down syndrome, and people with mobility impairments and other disabilities can take advantage of the services.
