Its interesting to look at how our neighborhood is promoted. Zillow rates neighborhoods with 3 scores. Perth Amboy has a very walkable score, a good transit score and a somewhat bikeable score. If we invested our money into our Bike Plan that has been developed but never implemented, and also connected to the Middlesex Greenway, we could increase our Bike Score and improve the quality of life for residents of our City. Also we could attract people to visit and call Perth Amboy home that want communities that have bike options for recreation and transportation. Once the $43 million train station renovation is completed, will our Transit Score increase? Hopefully.
Implementing the Bike Plan can help Perth Amboy address the parking crisis, reduce traffic, improve public safety and improve the environment and public health.
