Legislative Updates Transportation & Infrastructure Updates
On February 17, Governor Phil Murphy, Congressman Donald Norcross, Senate President Sweeney and local and county officials announced $250 million for the redevelopment of the Walter Rand Transportation Center (WRTC). This is the center’s first major renovation since opening in 1989.  

The WRTC Improvement Project, seeks to upgrade and enlarge the existing facility to accommodate the development renaissance currently underway in the City of Camden. The new WRTC building will provide accommodations for future transit developments and the potential for new retail, office, housing and hospitality opportunities utilizing Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) design standards.

The WRTC is envisioned to be replaced and expanded to accommodate growth throughout Camden County. The project would ultimately replace the existing facility with an expanded multi-purpose transit center that will provide an improved link for transportation in South Jersey. The new center will provide better connections between PATCO and the River Line, NJ Transit bus lines and space for private bus lines, as well as have parking and charging stations for electric vehicles.

NJ TRANSIT plans to issue an RFP to obtain proposals from qualified professional firms to conduct Conceptual Design, Preliminary Engineering, Final Design Engineering, and Construction Assistance for the WRTC Improvement Project.
