What could make it easier for you to get to where you are trying to go in Monmouth County, whether you’re travelling to a store or spending a day at the shore? Monmouth Within Reach is a study being led by transportation planners from Monmouth County and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority, with professional assistance from Stantec and Stokes Creative Group, Inc.
This is Monmouth Within Reach.
Whether you live here year-round or visit for the world class beaches and entertainment, Monmouth County is the place you want to be. Monmouth Within Reach is a federally funded study to develop strategies and best practices to reduce congestion related to tourism and events by using the resources we have to more effectively manage the demands on our transportation network.
A study like this needs your input, so please help us help you by signing up for study and online event updates, and taking our survey. We want to hear about your experience travelling in the County on heavy travel days.
This study was proposed and selected for federal funding in 2018, before the COVID-19 pandemic had any effect on our day to day lives. The Monmouth Within Reach Team recognizes that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our lives in many ways, including attendance at and business related to tourism and events. However, the study could not be postponed. The team is using historical transportation data from 2018 and 2019 to review congestion levels related to tourism and events, and looks forward to an appropriate time for the study’s recommendations to be implemented when tourism and event attendance returns to normal.
