Our May meeting will take place on the 18th, the third Monday of the month, because of the Memorial Day holiday. Our presenter will be Louis Hoffman, Program Manager for NJTIP, the New Jersey Travel Independence Program, which is part of the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. Hoffman, who has ties to Essex County, will explain how NJTIP trains persons with disabilities to travel independently, including using the “regular” services offered by NJ Transit.
At our June meeting, on June 23, Coalition Treasurer Jesse Gribin will present his suggestions for moving New Jersey commuters into and out of New York City until new tunnel capacity under the Hudson River can be built. His ideas are highly relevant, since even one new tunnel will not be open for several years.
