In response to Governor Phil Murphy’s announcement that New Jersey will seek to upgrade and enlarge the Walter Rand Transit Center in Camden, Senator Nilsa Cruz-Perez, Assemblyman William Spearman and Assemblyman Bill Moen (all D-Camden, Gloucester) issued the following joint statement:
“The Walter Rand Transit Center Improvement Project will do more than just transform the center itself – it will help transform the entire region. Creating a larger, more refined facility that can better accommodate bus and rail lines will allow WRTC to serve as the central transportation hub for South Jersey.
“Residents deserve a safe, state-of-the-art center they can depend on as they travel to and from important locations. Not only will these improvements benefit commuters, they will benefit all of Camden County by presenting more retail, office, housing and hospitality opportunities in the area.
“We continue to strive for growth and redevelopment in Camden, and today’s announcement is a huge step forward. We look forward to the ways in which this project will contribute to ongoing efforts to revitalize and advance our community.”
