Save NJ Transit from more fare hikes and service cuts
New Jersey Transit already had major fare hikes and service cuts in 2010 which have led to the highest transit fares in the US. Stop any further fare hikes or service cuts for NJ Transit which provided key mobility through all the snowstorms for $0. We need lower fares and more service which will actually increase Green Transit riders and revenues.
Why is this important?
New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the US, more densely populated than China. Already millions of riders use NJ Transit to reach their jobs, events and for mobility without clogging our highways even during months of snow. Green public transit reduces congestion, pollution, and costs for all taxpayers. For example, NJ spent $135 Million for snow removal on roads in 2013-2014 versus virtually zero for Rail, while also allowing people to travel safely despite the frequent snowstorms. We need fare cuts and service restored to 2008 levels not more fare hikes and service cuts.
