Mazzeo & Armato Respond to Governor's Announcement Regarding Atlantic City Rail Line
In response to Governor Phil Murphy's announcement this morning that he will direct New Jersey Transit to set a date to reopen the Atlantic City Rail Line, Assemblymen Vince Mazzeo and John Armato released the following statement:
"I'm pleased the Governor finally heard our calls for action on the Atlantic City Rail Line," said Mazzeo (D-Atlantic). "If NJ Transit delivers on the Governor's directive to set a date to reopen the line by the end of the week, we will get a little closer to restoring normalcy for thousands of people in Atlantic County who ride the train each day. However, we need to hold NJ Transit accountable to actually meet this deadline."
"Now that the Governor has stepped in, it's my hope that we'll begin to see the progress so many rail riders have demanded since the AC Line closed in September," said Armato (D-Atlantic). "We've waited for answers from NJ Transit for months on end and we've been stonewalled at every turn. I'm prepared to hold their feet to the fire to make sure those answers are delivered this week, which will help Atlantic County see a light at the end of the tunnel."
