Hudson County, with a population of 634,266, is the most densely populated county in the state. Jersey City, the county seat, is a commercial and industrial center. Hudson County's high population density creates a variety of transportation challenges to moving people safely, economically and efficiently. The county's travelers are well served by extensive mass transit and infrastructure, including the PATH, the Hudson Bergen Light Rail system and many bus lines. Hoboken Terminal is a major hub of train, bus and ferry activity.

The urban development along the "Gold Coast" of Jersey City's waterfront has brought companies and new residents into the area. Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, the New Jersey City University in Jersey City and St. Peter’s in Englewood Cliffs offer higher education options.
