Planning for innovative urban mobility in Jersey City

Learn about New Jersey's new tech-enabled microtransit program and how this new kind of mobility option facilitates equity and access.

In 2020, Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop and his team at City Hall experimented with a new solution to the city’s long-standing mobility challenge using a new form of transit: on-demand microtransit, in a partnership with Via. Jersey City residents can book trips from their smartphone, or by phoning a call center, to go to where they need to go in a shared ride. 

In a recent webinar from Next City, the city’s transit leaders explained what has made this public-private partnership — which recently celebrated its two-year anniversary — so successful, discuss the history of their collaboration, and share learnings and recommendations for urban leaders looking to pursue similar partnerships.
