What is Travel Instruction?

Travel Instruction is a spectrum of services meant to teach safe independent travel skills on public transit: the bus, train, light rail, county and private systems. NJTIP customers learn how to read bus and train schedules, plan their trips, pay their fares, and take safety precautions.

After finishing training, our customers enjoy traveling on their own to go to work, school and medical appointments and to visit family and friends.
