Advocates for people with disabilities detail obstacles in traveling NJ Transit

January 17, 2020

Karen Alexander, managing director of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center, told the senators about a program she oversees that teaches people with disabilities how to navigate the fixed-route bus and train public transportation system so they don’t have to rely on Access Link.

The program, which receives funding from NJ Transit, has existed since 2007, and during that time “453 people have completed individual NJ Transit travel instruction, all of whom would otherwise be on Access Link, with over 87% reporting they continued to use transit after training,” Alexander said.
