Bergen County Bus Rapid Transit Implementation Study

A unique collaboration between NJ TRANSIT and the Bergen County Department of Planning & Engineering has resulted in completion of the Bergen County Bus Rapid Transit Implementation Study. The Study investigated the viability and the best approach for introducing bus rapid transit (BRT) services in Bergen County.

The Study’s final report recommends a preferred network of four routes for BRT service. It suggests using a phased approach, with an eye toward implementing service along a north / south spine connecting Paramus and Secaucus and an east / west spine linking Englewood and Paterson, providing a base network for growing a larger system that would connect with other key activity centers and transit hubs in Bergen County.

Our goal is for Bergen County to have a BRT system makes it easier for thousands of people to get to work, school, and other destinations within the county, helping make our great county an even better place to live.
