Trentonians will have reliable and affordable transportation options to local and regional job centers and destinations.



Trenton’s median income of $37,219 is less than half of any other municipality in Mercer County, and 30% of residents do not own a car. Affordable transportation options, providing access to jobs both in the City and suburbs, are essential to Trenton’s residents. Stakeholders have indicated that suburban job centers, including those along US Route 1, are underserved by transit. Recently, the Greater Mercer TMA added the Z-line between the Hamilton Marketplace (NJ Route 130/I-195 interchange) and the Amazon facility at the Matrix business park (Old York Road/I-195 interchange). Similar services may be needed to access other suburban destinations. Additional transit opportunities include better connections to the West Trenton Railroad Station and the Trenton-Mercer Airport. The US Route 1 BRT system offers the opportunity to connect Trenton to suburban destinations by using the system’s planned transfer centers.
