In October 1987, the township of North Brunswick, New Jersey, passed an innovative traffic management ordinance that required commercial and residential developers, property managers, and employers of 50 or more employees to make annual travel surveys, promote ridesharing, and set aside preferential parking for ridesharers and van pool staging and park-and-ride lots for commuter bus service to New York City. Work schedules must be concentrated so that no more than 60% of the total workforce is scheduled to begin or end work regularly during the morning and afternoon peak periods (7:20 to 9:10 a.m. and 3:50 to 5:40 p.m.). The traffic management ordinance is reviewed from the appointment of a task force to its implementation through December 1990.
