The Heartland of New Jersey is home to Atlantic City International Airport (ACY). Located on 2,200 acres in Pomona, recent improvements to the airport include a $40 million terminal and taxiway expansion and the addition of a 1,000-space covered parking garage. In recent years, airport passenger traffic has grown to more than one million annually.
In addition to general aviation airports in Millville and Hammonton, and the Spitfire Aerodrome in Pedricktown, New Jersey’s Heartland is within easy driving distance of the Philadelphia International Airport and New Castle County Airport in Delaware.
For residents and visitors, NJ Transit – the nation’s third-largest provider of bus, rail and light rail transit service – provides a cost-effective, user-friendly public transportation system connecting cities with the Heartland of New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York areas. In total, NJ Transit has a fleet of 2,027 buses, 711 trains, and 45 light rail vehicles, servicing nearly 225 million passenger trips per year.
South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) provides the traveling public with safe and efficient transportation over the Atlantic City Expressway and Atlantic City International Airport. SJTA Transportation Services operates “shuttle to work” routes in Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Atlantic counties, a shuttle service for veterans to medical providers, and parking facilities in Atlantic City and at the Atlantic City International Airport.
Perhaps the most impressive stretch of roadway within New Jersey’s Heartland is the Delaware Memorial Twin Suspension Bridges – the world’s longest twin span suspension bridges that serves as a major link in eastern United States’ transportation system. Operated by The Delaware River and Bay Authority, the bridge connects Pennsville and New Castle, DE, servicing over 80,000 passenger vehicles daily.
The Pascale Sykes Foundation funds five transportation efforts as part of the South Jersey Strengthening Families Initiative. Located in each of its four-targeted counties, the Transportation Plus Initiatives offer shuttle linkages to public transportation, employment and education.
