Assemblywoman Angela McKnight (D-Hudson) issued the following statement in response to a recent announcement that NJ Transit will implement an emergency stabilization bus service plan to ensure commuters have uninterrupted access to bus services despite the discontinuation of seven A&C and O.N.E routes:
“I commend NJ Transit for taking swift action to ensure residents of Jersey City do not lose access to transportation services when privately operated bus routes are no longer available. If not for the agency’s emergency stabilization plan, the termination of A&C and O.N.E stops would have a devastating impact on members of my community, leaving them to find other, more time-consuming, and costly methods of transportation if they want to get where they need to go.
“For daily commuters and those who rely on these routes to run errands or visit family, the continued availability of affordable and reliable transportation options is critical. NJ Transit’s efforts to bridge gaps in service will truly make a difference for our Hudson County communities.”
