Train vs driving l.jpg

Train vs. Driving

  • Driving is faster

  • Train is easier; gives time to do study

  • Somehow, we need to travel… but HOW???

  • Which is the cheapest, safest, and most efficient way to make it to NJIT?


Driving problems l.jpg

DRIVING PROBLEMS

  • Accidents on parkway

  • Construction

  • Cops pull you over

  • Car breaks down

  • Gas is extremely expensive

  • Takes away your time to study; driver needs to pay full attention

TRANSIT PROBLEMS

  • Power Outages

  • Train Derailment

  • Follows a schedule

  • Missed Train / Cancelled Train

  • Crowded cars / busses

  • Need to change trains or busses

  • TRACK WORK CAUSE OF DELAYS (i.e. Rail tie replacement currently)

  • Need tickets (long lines) / Risk getting a $74 ticket if ticket is not stamped (Newark Light Rail)

Student Form of Transportation

  • Almost 2/3 of student’s primary transportation is driving.

  • Only about 1/3 of students use mass transit.

  • 16 students drive

  • 5 students use public transportation

  • 1 person “walks” – perhaps they live on/near campus?

TRAVELING TO CAMPUS Directions & Distances

  • About 4/10 of students travel from the North

  • Approx. 3/10 travel from the South

  • 2 people “Live On Campus”

  • Most students live within a 20 Mile radius of NJIT

  • Some students travel very far to come to campus.

SYSTEMS USED & COST

  • Cost of traveling varies greatly.

  • Cost can be as little as $0 to $10 to as much as over $200 per month.

  • Almost half the students use NJ Transit as their main system of commuting.

  • The PATH comes in second.

  • One student uses NY Subway most frequently!
