American Dream mall just missed a big deadline on its NJ Transit plans

Anxious shoppers trying to figure out how they will get to the American Dream were supposed to begin seeing advertisements explaining transit options to the mega-mall last week. But, there’s one problem. The bigger plan for train and bus service to the development is still being finalized.

There is a lot riding on the transit plan, even if you drive to American Dream.

Some experts questioned if it’s too much to put on NJ Transit.

“This is another example of transportation agencies being asked to bear the impossible burden of making up for development planning where transit needs are an afterthought," said Nat Bottigheimer, New Jersey Director of the Regional Plan Association.
