An overview of the maintenance and cost experiences of park-and-ride facilities now owned by the New Jersey Department of Transportation is presented. A brief description is given of how the department became involved in the operation of park-and-ride facilities--initially subsidizing the maintenance of privately owned facilities and eventually constructing its own rail park-and-ride facility at MetroPark Station on the present Northeast Corridor Line. Department-maintained and municipally maintained park-and-ride facilities are compared in terms of costs and effectiveness. The state of New Jerey is in the process of finalizing the acquisition of more than 130 rail stations with associated parking, and the New Jersey Department of Transportation is developing a plan to effectively deal with the maintenance and service needs of these facilities. The proposed policy, which calls for local operation and management of state-owned rail stations and park-and-ride facilities, is outlined. (Author)
