Karen Alexander, managing director of NJTIP @ Rutgers, is available to discuss a new resource that helps New Jerseyans use public transportation to reach COVID-19 vaccine sites.
“Many people, including essential workers, have limited access to private vehicles or taxis,” said Alexander. “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 counties are included. The list will be updated every two weeks. To download, visit COVID-19 Vaccine Sites – Transit Information List.
NJTIP @ Rutgers is part of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center based at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers-New Brunswick. To learn more, visit njtip.rutgers.edu.
