The County's transportation planning program consists of a cooperative effort between the Board of Chosen Freeholders and its agencies and advisory boards. The primary planning agencies include the Ocean County Planning Department, the Ocean County Engineering Department and the Ocean County Transportation Services Department.

The Planning staff works collaborately with County agencies in various planning efforts, including Crash Studies, Strategy Evaluation efforts, Corridor Studies and other activities related to the development of the Regional Transportation Plan. The Planning department provides GIS support to other County agencies on transportation projects as well as other applications.

Interagency Planning and Coordination:
 


The Engineering staff develops the transportation and capital improvement programs, local/scoping lead projects and the implementation and management of the County’s road and bridge projects. The primary operating agency is the Ocean County Transportation Services Department, which administers a variety of federal and state grant programs and operates several services including the Ocean Ride bus system, Reserve-A-Ride, Veterans Transportation and specialized programs for adults with disabilities.

The County also works closely with federal, state and regional and local transportation agencies, including the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA) and the NJ Department of Transportation (NJDOT). The primary forum for public participation is through the Ocean County Transportation Advisory Board (TAB). A more thorough list of partners is available on the links webpage.

Through the NJTPA, the Planning staff administers the federally funded Subregional Transportation Planning Program. This grant makes it possible to support local and regional planning and capital project funding for the improvement of transportation and intermodal facilities.

Notable recent planning activities included the coordination of Walkable Communities Workshops in Toms River, Lakewood, and Plumsted Townships, a crash study in the northern Ocean County area, and working with Ocean County municipalities on transportation issues and State Plan endorsement and other projects.

The overall policy and objectives of the County's transportation planning program are incorporated into the Ocean County Comprehensive Master Plan.
