New Jersey Future In Transportation


Over the past several years, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) has been working with counties, municipalities, and other stakeholders to re-invest in New Jersey's communities. Known as NJFIT or Future In Transportation, this effort is conducted in partnership with the Office of Smart Growth (OSG) and other state agencies. NJDOT continues to build on these partnerships to improve quality of life in the state of New Jersey.

The current land use development in New Jersey can not be maintained and compromises future generation's needs. Current developments in transportation also contribute to unsustainable conditions that include greenhouse gas emissions, energy insecurity, congestion and environmental impacts.

NJFIT changed the way NJDOT does business in New Jersey by using a comprehensive and cooperative approach to transportation and land use planning. Working with community planners, we can keep jobs, goods and services within reach of every New Jersey citizen and reinvest in our infrastructure by shaping transportation to fit into the environment of our communities.
