The New Jersey Travel Independence Program (NJTIP) was created in an effort to increase the independence and self-sufficiency of people with disabilities, older adults, and others by empowering them to use the public transit system safely and independently.
NJTIP @ Rutgers works with a variety of government agencies, community organizations, and schools to teach travel skills to individuals. One-on-one travel instruction pairs the customer with a travel instructor who teaches them safe independent travel skills and various modes of public transportation. This program is also available to customers (except for those who are visually impaired) who have applied to Access Link and live in one of the following counties: Bergen, Camden, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, and Union. The only cost to customers during training is paying their own fares. Each graduate receives a free one-month bus pass.
