New Jersey Transit to Decide on Late Night Rockland Trains

New Jersey Transit will hold a board meeting on Wednesday to decide whether or not to stop running late trains from Hoboken to Rockland County. Thousands of commuters use the train to get back and forth to Manhattan and in an attempt to eliminate a $56 million budget gap, New Jersey Transit is considering getting rid of the 12:45 AM train from Hoboken, New Jersey meaning the last train to depart for the day would be 10:42 PM. As well as cutting services the transit company is looking to raise fares for riders on the line to Suffern by 9%. Rockland County Executive Ed Day spoke out against the choice to cut services and increase fares, saying it will hurt the working class members of Rockland County who use the lines to get to their jobs. According to officials with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, they are discussing with NJT the possibility of paying to run the train, which would cost them $640,000.
