New resource helps residents find public transportation to reach NJ vaccine sites

With support from NJTRANSIT, NJTIP @ Rutgers has prepared an online resource list to help people find public transportation to reach COVID-19 vaccine sites in New Jersey.  

“Many people, including essential workers, have limited access to private vehicles or taxis,” said Karen Alexander, managing director of NJTIP @ Rutgers. “Our travel instructors wanted to help residents get to COVID-19 vaccine sites by building a list that details public transit access. The research included consulting a variety of trip planning tools and maps to find and confirm transit resources across the state.”

The list was compiled by NJTIP @ Rutgers’ travel instructors and is based on vaccination locations as of Jan. 13, 2021. All 21 of the state’s counties are included. The list will be updated every two weeks.
