THE EFFECTS OF THE 1972 TRENTON, NEW JERSEY BUS STRIKE ON THE MODAL CHOICE OF THE COMMUTERS

The drivers of the Transport of New Jersey (TNJ) Bus Company declared a strike against their employer in 1972 for seventy-five days, leaving about 350,000 daily riders with the problem for finding alternate modes of transportation. The objectives of this report are to establish 'what happened' in modal use during the strike-related periods and to attempt to identify how location and passenger characteristics may or may not affect such strike-related modal use changes.
