New mass transit services make
life easier for New Jersey commuters

NJ Transit launches new Midtown Direct service

On September 30 Governor Jim McGreevey and I announced the opening of a MidTOWN DIRECT service on the Montclair-Boonton Line. The new Montclair Connection will save half an hour each day for more than 4,000 NJ TRANSIT customers by providing a direct access to Manhattan during peak and off-peak hours.

This service benefits more than just NJ TRANSIT riders. MidTOWN DIRECT will also reduce congestion on roads leading into New York City by an estimated 1,000 cars a day. The opening of the Montclair Connection highlights our efforts to provide a mass transit system that is convenient and efficient.

New Jersey commuters enjoy new East
Concourse at NY Penn Station

With the opening of the 7th Avenue East End Concourse in Manhattan, NJ TRANSIT has a new home in New York Penn Station.

As of Monday, September 23, 2002, the 60,000 New Jersey customers passing through New York Penn Station will have their own waiting area, ticket windows and platform announcement board.

The opening of the East End Concourse alleviates the chaos of the former location in New York Penn Station for our customers while providing the quality of service mass transit requires.

If we want people to leave their cars at home, we must make it a welcome option. This attractive and convenient new concourse demonstrates our commitment to achieving that goal.
