Through collective action and collaboration, NECT is dedicated to creating and promoting better public transit solutions in the Northeast region of the United States. We advocate for holistic and long-term transportation planning that benefits all Northeast commuters.
Our vision is to transform the Northeast into the first “car-optional” region in the country. To make this a reality, NECT seeks to unify transit advocacy efforts and put pressure on local and state leaders to commit to investing more in mass transit infrastructure. As rail and bus ridership continues to grow, legislators and transit officials must focus on increasing capacity and targeted expansion. We aspire to be the leading influence behind this cause.
NECT is a not-for-profit and is entirely run by volunteers. As commuters and transit enthusiasts, we know firsthand the import role that efficient public transit plays in our region and the lives of Northeast commuters.
