New Jersey’s coastal towns and cities are under increasing pressure as the state struggles to keep its economy afloat amid the Great Recession.
The state is grappling with an unprecedented population loss, the loss of the natural beauty of its beaches, and the growing threat of flooding from storms and coastal erosion.
Here is how to find the right ride to get around.

In the 1960s and 1970s, around 4.5 million people lived in the region, according to the UN’s World Population Prospects.
By 2050, that number is expected to shrink to 3.5-4.5m, according the UN.
It is the only world island with a population greater than 100,000 people.
“The region is in a transition phase,” said Michael Schatz, who heads the Rutgers University Maritime and Marine Studies Institute.
“The climate is changing, the water quality is changing.
And we’re not seeing a lot of people moving out of the area.”
While the region has experienced its share of natural disasters and population losses, there is no shortage of people trying to make the most of the opportunities offered by the region’s coastal communities.
Bridget McManus, who runs the Jersey Shore-Bridgewater Regional Chamber of Commerce, said she was lucky enough to be able to find rides to the beach for her family.
“[I] can take them to the ferry, I can take a cruise, I have an RV.
I have a car, so it’s really convenient,” she said.
“It’s nice that there’s a place to go, you don’t have to pay the gas or the tolls.”
She said she would love to see a more developed coastline to the south and to the east of the island, and a seaplane park to the west.
But it will take more than a park and boat to make a dent in the decline.
According to a report released by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), between 2000 and 2010, the number of people living in the US who were in low- and moderate-income households fell by around 6.4 million, from 9.2 million to 6.5million.
That was the first time in almost two decades that low-income people in the country were declining in numbers.
Experts say the decline has affected the state’s tourism industry as well.
There is currently a surge in demand for boat rides from visitors from California, Florida, New Jersey and Virginia.
This year, tourists will pay up to $7,000 (Dh20,900) for a ride from the southern coast to the northern part of the state, and from there to the Cape Cod.
However, the ride will cost $1,600 per person, and people with incomes above that will be stuck in traffic.
As more and more people choose to stay in the area, the demand for boats has also risen.
At least four companies offer cruise lines to take tourists to the southern coastal area, including Virgin Atlantic, Virgin Atlantic Ocean and Virgin Atlantic Cruise Lines.
Virgin Atlantic offers a daily cruise from San Francisco to Jacksonville in the Caribbean Sea.
The company offers a day-and-date cruise from Jacksonville to Cape Canaveral in Florida.
Cruise lines that offer day- and night-only trips to the Caribbean are Virgin Atlantic Caribbean and Virgin America.
Both Virgin Atlantic and Virgin American have been running seasonal cruises in the southern areas of the region since the 1980s.
