The restructuring of traditional office arrangements and the widespread adoption of home offices are together challenging our region's transportation authorities like at no time in our past. With this sudden reality expected to dominate the next 2 to 3 years, last Tuesday GSI convened an expert panel to discuss the priorities and policy changes our transportation leaders need to consider and then begin to undertake to serve New Jersey residents and businesses.
Our panel included: Jon Carnegie, Executive Director of Rutgers’ Voorhees Transportation Center; Nicole Gelinas, Manhattan Institute & NY Post Columnist; Robert (Bob) Gordon, NJ Transit Board Member, fmr. State Senator and current Commissioner of the Board of Public Utilities and James S. Simpson, fmr. NJ DOT Commissioner, Federal Transit Administrator and MTA Board Member.
As a result of the discussion, GSI has formulated a series of policy recommendations for the legislature focused on improving service for customers and implementing reforms that create value for taxpayers.
