New Jersey Transit Cuts Train Service

At a meeting on Wednesday night the New Jersey Transit Board voted to approve raising fares and cutting trains to Rockland County. Members voted unanimously to cut the Pascack Valley Line 12:45 weekday train which runs from Hoboken, New Jersey to various stops in the county carrying about 40 commuters daily. The last train will now be the 10:42 PM taking affect in September. The board decided to continue running a 12:45 AM train on Saturdays and Sundays, with stops to Pearl River, Nanuet, and Spring Valley. Officials with the transit company stated that this option has the least impact on riders, while still closing the gap in their yearly budget. Along with cutting services NJT will be raising fares for commuters who travel to Secaucus Junction to Penn Station. For the Pascack Vally Line riders will pay $4 more per month, as well as $6 more for Sloatsburg and $9 more for Suffern riders. County officials and residents complained about both decisions to the company, stating it is unfair to workers trying to get to jobs or who have to leave Manhattan later than the 10:42 train, now left with no other option to get home.
