New Jersey Transit has called for fare increases and elimination of some service that affect our area of concern. They include eliminating the last train of the evening from Hoboken on the Montclair-Boonton and Pascack Valley Lines, as well as eliminating the connection between Morristown and the Livingston Mall on the #872 bus.
The Lackawanna Coalition opposes the fare increases and the service cuts, and we will be on hand to make statements at 3 of the hearings, which will take place within our service area.
They will take place on the 3 successive evenings after our meeting on May 18th. All hearings will run from 5:30 until 8:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, May 19th at the Frank R. Lautenberg Rail Station at Secaucus Junction.
- Wednesday, May 20th at NJ Transit Headquarters, One Penn Plaza East, Newark.
- Thursday, May 21st at Morristown Town Hall, 200 South Street, Morristown, in the Senior Community Center on the 3rd floor
If enough people show their disapproval of these proposals, NJ Transit might listen and make some changes. We urge you to make your voices heard. We will be at the Secaucus, Newark, and Morristown hearings. We hope to see you there, too.
