Speaker Prieto: NJ Transit Fare Hike Plan an Affront to Working Class New Jersey

Speaker Prieto: NJ Transit Fare Hike Plan an Affront to Working Class New Jersey
BY TOM HESTER
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson/Bergen) released the following s statement Monday on NJ Transit’s plans to increase fares and curtail services:

“To say I’m disappointed by NJ Transit would be an understatement. I’m appalled at this terrible approach to transportation policy and astonished by the lack of regard for the working people of New Jersey who rely on NJ Transit to make ends meet.

“No one should be mistaken – this fare hike would be a tax increase on working people that would fail to do anything to solve New Jersey’s long-term transportation funding crisis. It would cause pain to working class residents without providing any benefit. That’s awful public policy.

“I’ve been advocating nonstop for a sensible and responsible solution to our transportation crisis precisely so we can avoid reckless decisions such as this one by NJ Transit.
