NJTPA Alternative Fuel Vehicle Readiness Plans

Montclair Readiness Plan
Secaucus Readiness Plan
Woodbridge Readiness Plan
Final Report

“The plans consider how municipal regulations and infrastructure can be improved to advance the use of alternative fuel vehicles, including a review of local zoning and land use ordinances, permitting requirements and potential locations for infrastructure.

The NJTPA also developed a Readiness Guidebook to help communities in the NJTPA’s 13-county region that are interested in developing local readiness plans. The guidebook describes the variety of alternative fuel vehicle options for both consumers and fleet operators, highlights what it takes to become AFV ready and offers recommended actions and further resources.”
