Mission & Organization

 

The South Jersey Transportation Authority (SJTA) was established by the Legislature in June 1991 to assume operational responsibilities for the Atlantic City Expressway, Atlantic City International Airport terminal, and parking facilities in Atlantic City. As a successor to the New Jersey Expressway Authority and Atlantic County Transportation Authority (ACTA), the SJTA serves six counties --- Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester, and Salem.

Legislation (N.J.S.A. 27:25A-1 et seq.) charged the Authority with coordinating South Jersey's transportation system, including addressing the region's highway network, aviation facilities and transportation needs. The Authority' transportation network encompasses public highways, and transportation projects, parking facilities and functions once performed by ACTA; other public transportation facilities; and related economic development facilities in New Jersey.

The Atlantic City Expressway
(ACE), the Atlantic City International Airport (ACY), Transportation Services, and Tourist Services are the Authority's core components. These entities are divided into eight departments: Executive, Airport, Engineering & Operations, Finance, Information &Tolls Technology, Marketing & Communications, Business Administration, Tourist Services, and Transportation Services.  Each department contributes to the Authority's focus of using transportation facilities to stimulate economic development within its six-county service area.

The Mission of the South Jersey Transportation Authority is to provide the traveling public with safe and efficient transportation through the acquisition, construction, maintenance, operation, and support of expressway, airport, transit, parking, other transportation projects and services that support the economies of Atlantic, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties.
