Tell NJ’s Senators to Stand up for Transit Riders in New Jersey!
May 11th, 2010 by Jay Corbalis
The recent service cuts and fare hikes at NJ Transit were a serious blow to the thousands of New Jersey residents who rely on public transportation. They were also part of a trend of service cuts and fare hikes at transit agencies across the country, as detailed in T4 America’s new report, Stranded at the Station. A strong transit system is not only crucial to mobility in New Jersey, but is also a major source of economic development and a driver of sustainable land-use patterns.
Now, Congress has a chance to aid transit agencies struggling with deficits and cuts, but they need to hear from you! Please take a moment to call New Jersey’s Senators and tell them you support emergency funding for NJ Transit and other transit agencies across the country!

You can also take action by sending a message to Congress asking for increased funding of transit through T4 America’s website.
