The New Jersey Bike & Walk Coalition, in partnership with the Voorhees Transportation Center, will be hosting the 4th Annual New Jersey Bike & Walk Summit on Saturday, February 23 at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University in New Brunswick. This year’s summit is expected to be twice the size of the 2012 Summit, with over 20 panel sessions planned and an opening address from Transportation for America Director James Corless.
The NJBWC has partnered with Tri-State on a variety of issues. Most recently, the Coalition has been working with NJDOT and the State’s three Metropolitan Planning Organizations to effectively implement new policy changes enacted since the new federal bill, MAP-21, was adopted last year, and with NJ Transit to improve its bikes on rail policies. Tri-State staff members Steven Higashide, Matthew Norris and Janna Chernetz will be among several panelists to speak at the February 23 Summit on issues ranging from federal funding to improving bicycle and pedestrian safety in New Jersey.
