Happy New Year! It’s time to leave 2018 behind and plan for another full year, with new hopes and plans. We accomplished a lot last year; we launched a redesigned website, began work on the Greater Mercer Trail Network Plan study to help create an integrated network of multi-use paths and trails, co-hosted a Vision Zero conference, conducted walk audits, and more. Our annual report will highlight our impact and will be published soon.  And we are not slowing down; we have big plans and hopes for 2019. So here are some of the GMTMA staff hopes for 2019:

  • A Vision Zero policy for any (or all) municipality or county
  • Increased implementation of Complete Streets projects
  • The completion of our Network Trail Plan Study ( coming spring 2019)
  • Bike and pedestrian plans for Robbinsville, Ewing, and Hopewell
  • Seeing more parents stop idling in school drop-off zones and letting their kids bike and walk to school
  • More cars and drivers for our RideProvide transportation program so there won’t be a waiting list for new riders
  • Seeing seniors organized to do walking audits
  • An Express NJ TRANSIT bus route from Tuckerton & Manahawkin to Princeton/West Windsor (clearly a personal wish…)
  • More employers setting up vanpool programs for their employees
  • More employers participating in Bike to Work Week and more teams competing
  • More organizations receiving the New Jersey Smart Workplace Award
  • Donation of a new vehicle to the RideProvide program would be really sweet too!

Wishing all a happy, healthy, and safe new year!
