The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) Bureau of Research invites you to share your ideas on the NJDOT Transportation Research Ideas site.

WHAT IS IT? The NJ Transportation Research Ideas website, is a collaborative online platform where you can post, share, and vote to show your support for the best research ideas.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE? We seek innovative research ideas and practical solutions to the issues that New Jersey faces that affect the safety, mobility and accessibility of New Jersey’s residents, workers, visitors and businesses. • Institutes of Higher Education, MPOs, County or Local Governments, Industry, Trade and NGOs: Share your thoughts and suggestions for research that deserves greater attention and funding. • NJDOT, NJ TRANSIT and the NJ Motor Vehicle Commission: Become a “champion” for timely and relevant research. Identify the topics for research that can advance innovative and effective solutions to the state’s critical infrastructure challenges and emerging transportation needs.

HOW DO I REGISTER? Register at the NJ Transportation Research Ideas website welcome page here: If you registered in the last two years, you will not need to register again.

HOW DO I SUBMIT AN IDEA? Only registered participants can log in to submit a new idea, or vote on other ideas to show your support. Once you are registered, you may submit ideas at any time. Just click the “Submit New Idea” button in the right hand corner and you’ll be directed to share your ideas. All we need is a title and a description - although the more detailed, the better!

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Research ideas must be submitted by December 31, 2019 to be considered for the next round of research RFPs. The NJDOT Research Oversight Committee (ROC) will prioritize research ideas after this date, and high priority research needs will be posted for proposals.
