The Impact of Mode and Mode Transfers on Commuter Stress, Phase 2

Project Objective

The primary objective of this study is to increase our understanding of degree of stress experienced by mass transit commuters and the impact of that stressful experience on commuters- lives, psychologically and psycho physiologically, at work and at home. We also seek to better understand the individual and trip factors and conditions that can serve to increase or ameliorate stress from the trip.

As part of the assessment of the PATH corporation's readiness to adopt Total Quality Management (TQM) system, it is necessary to determine how PATH is currently performing (e.g. providing service), how this performance has changed over the past several years (continued improvements, static, or continued decline), and how PATH performance compares to peer properties.

Transit Oriented Development Benefits of New Transit Service: The River LINE

NJ Transit's River LINE opened in March 2004, providing daily one-seat light rail service between Trenton and Camden. The 34-mile line roughly parallels Route 130 and makes 20 station stops in 13 communities in Camden, Burlington, and Mercer Counties. One of the major stated objectives of the River Line was to stimulate smart, locally embraced development and with it economic growth that is supportive of transit along the corridor. NJ Transit is interested in understanding the degree to which the new light rail line has been a catalyst for new development in the area.
