Raritan Valley Line Mayors' Alliance
The Raritan Valley Line Mayors' Alliance (RVL Mayors) is a bi-partisan group of 32 Mayors from Union, Somerset, Hunterdon and Middlesex Counties advocating for fair and equitable service for more than 23,000 users of the RVL. The Mayors, organized in 2018, are working with State Legislators to gain support for midtown direct service/one-seat ride during weekday peak hours and weekends and currently, for restoration of the off-peak one-seat rides. Despite ridership equal to or greater than some other lines with peak hour midtown direct trains, RVL has none. RVL commuters are forced to switch trains and platforms in Newark adding a minimum of an additional 25 minutes to their commute.
