The 1970s set in motion a continuing transportation planning program that would provide an efficient and cost effective system of public transportation services for Camden County. Camden County initiated a systematic planning effort--the Coordinated Mass Transit Systems (CMTS) Study--to analyze the transportation needs of the county residents and subsequently to develop a transportation improvement program. Phase I of the CMTS study was completed in July 1977, and it focused on specific transportation issues such as an assessment of the quality of service; evaluation of public information programs; and the role of the county in public transportation. Phase II work was completed in June 1979. Phase II study, this report, focused on three areas: (1) feasibility of park-n-ride express bus service between the future PATCO Berlin Station site and the Lindenwold Station; (2) analysis of all paratransit services; and (3) analysis of all fixed-route transit services in the county. This report documents the evaluation steps and the recommendations of the CMTS Phase II study. It also contains an Executive Summary that highlights the principal conclusions and recommendations of both Phase I and Phase II study efforts. The CMTS Phase II study has recommended a specific implementable plan to improve mobility in Camden County. The recommendations developed during this study are summarized herein as well as the discussions of each of the three study areas. This study recommended that Camden County establish a program to improve coordination between services operated by municipalities, TNJ (Transport of New Jersey), PATCO, and Social Service Agencies.
