What Is NJ BPAC?
The New Jersey Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Council (BPAC) is coordinated by the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center, in conjunction with the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The goal of BPAC is to promote policies, practices and attitudes that increase bicycling and walking for transportation and recreation in order to enhance the state’s quality of life and improve public health and the environment. Council members include advocates, professionals, and staff members from local, county and state agencies from the transportation, health, environmental, and enforcement fields. In addition, there are four sub-committees on the Council: Design, Legislative, Safety, and Education. The Council meets four times a year at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy in New Brunswick. If you are interested in being a part of NJ BPAC, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
