NJ Transit presented the results of the legislatively mandated RVL one-seat ride feasibility study this week. We were VERY disappointed with their findings, which were limited in the options and the ridership data that they had considered. The report concluded that there is additional capacity to add trains during off peak hours, but it would take 6 years and $125 to do so, which doesn’t seem credible and doesn’t address our most frustrated peak train commuters. As disappointed as we are, this is just the beginning of a political and legislative process that will evolve as the transit situation becomes more certain post-COVID. Just know that RVL Mayors' Alliance will not give up the fight for equitable service.
