NJ Transit continues to advance the creation of its first ever Sustainability Plan with additional public input. A webinar on December 13th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., which is open to the public, will share the agency’s framework for the Sustainability Plan that was drafted with input from two previous public stakeholder sessions.
As highlighted in NJT2030: A 10-Year Strategic Plan,
NJ Transit has embarked on creating its first ever Sustainability Plan, incorporating feedback from stakeholders and the public throughout the state to help shape the future of sustainability at the agency. This plan and its implementation are part of a comprehensive, agency-wide effort that supports and advances
NJ Transit’s commitment to sustainability.

Through this Sustainability Plan, NJ Transit will create a vision to establish a more sustainable future for the planet, the communities we serve, and the NJ Transit organization. Sustainability themes like water and energy consumption, equitable transportation, clean vehicle technology, resiliency, and customer experience are among the themes that will be explored in the Sustainability Plan.
During the process, NJ Transit has been reaching out to stakeholders including the general public, environmental advocacy groups, community leaders, NJ Transit customers and the agency’s employees to develop the framework of the plan. The objective of this webinar is to present and gather feedback on the Sustainability Framework, and set the stage for development of the Sustainability Vision and Final Sustainability Plan. Attendees will be asked to share feedback on proposed goal statements, targets and metrics for the priority sustainability themes that will be addressed in NJ Transit’s Sustainability Plan.
The Sustainability Plan supports NJ Transit’s commitment to a clean energy future and will guide the direction for NJ Transit to be a sustainability leader in public transportation.
