“New Jersey Future understands the gravity of the state’s current budget crisis, and we recognize that hard choices are necessary to address the situation. We believe, however, that placing this burden solely on transit riders, and not on the transportation system as a whole, sends the wrong message about New Jersey’s priorities and damages the state’s potential for economic growth. New Jersey’s extensive transit system is one of its greatest competitive advantages; it has been a key factor inattracting employers and residents to the state in recent years. Cutting service and raising fares on the system not only hurts riders, but also limits our ability to create long-term, sustainable economic growth in New Jersey.”
