Newark-Area Transit Study

Newark-Area Transit Study


The four transit systems operating in the City of Newark – DART First State, City of Newark, Cecil Transit, and the University of Delaware – along with WILMAPCO, have formed the Newark Transit Improvement Partnership (Newark TrIP)  to consolidate and coordinate the systems to be more customer friendly and efficient. The project includes technical analysis and stakeholder outreach. For outreach, planners will be seeking feedback from transit riders, business and community groups, and transit drivers to better understand existing services, unmet transit needs, and opportunities for integration of services to evaluate ways to leverage improved transit performance to support or increase the economic viability of the region. The planning team will supplement stakeholder outreach with technical analysis of existing and potential transit use, to identify ways that transit can better serve the needs of the greater Newark community.
