Cryan: Commuters Deserve Answers on NJ Transit’s Broken Promise to Expand One-Seat Service into New York City

(20th LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT) – Assemblyman Joseph Cryan (D-Union) released the following statement Wednesday on NJ Transit failing to fulfill promises to expand one-seat service into New York:

“Gov. Christie is once again letting down the working men and women of New Jersey.
“Commuters deserve more than some vague tweets as to why the expansion of one-seat train service on the Raritan Valley Line isn’t going to happen as promised.
“The broken promise is even more ominous because of the alarming references to budget constraints. During this year’s budget hearings, neither NJ Transit, the treasurer nor any other administration official mentioned anything about budget constraints that would lead to this broken promise for New Jersey commuters. Why the sudden crisis? Are more NJ Transit services at risk? How did these constraints develop? What type of mismanagement is going on here?
“Commuters – and all taxpayers – need answers.
“Gov. Christie has given New Jersey commuters nothing more than fare increases, poor service, canceled plans and broken promises.”
