If you’ve been stuck on the Turnpike after a Giants game, or trapped in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Parkway trying to get to the Shore, you may disagree that NJ has some of the best transit around.
Sure, NJ Transit has its flaws like any other public transportation system, but it’s still the third largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit in the entire country. It manages to cover 5,325 square miles of the state and gets people to New York, Philadelphia and all across the Garden State amounting to a total of 270 million passenger trips per year. If you want to go somewhere, you’ve got so many viable options to get to work, concerts, vacation destinations and major cities like NY and Philly.
There are plenty of Ubers, Lyfts and taxis available in most of the state, making getting around even easier. And while there’s not much to be done about the traffic on Route 21 or 17 on any given day, the fact that you don’t have to pump your own gas (for now) makes driving here just a little bit nicer.
