About NJ BPAC2023-02-09T20:14:57+00:00

The New Jersey Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Council (NJ BPAC) is coordinated by the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center on behalf of the New Jersey Department of Transportation. The core mission of NJ BPAC is to advise, coordinate, and collaborate with NJDOT and other state, regional, and local agencies and organizations on policies, programs, initiatives, and best practices that advance walking, bicycling, transit, and micromobility as safe and essential forms of transportation and recreation for people of all ages and abilities, with a focus on meeting equity, safety, public health, and resiliency goals. NJ BPAC advises on the implementation of the New Jersey Bicycle & Pedestrian Master Plan, serving as both a resource and key stakeholder in existing and future statewide transportation planning efforts, such as the implementation of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Emphasis Area of the Strategic Highway Safety Plan. NJ BPAC is also a forum for information exchange, engagement, and coordination among experts and entities across the state, providing opportunities for resource-sharing and education on emerging issues, including access to experts in the field of bicycle and pedestrian safety, education, and design.
