Public transit is more than just getting from Point A to Point B – it’s the future engine of success for our state, with the potential to create a stronger economy, cleaner environment and more equitable transportation options for low- and moderate-income residents. Yet despite transit’s clear benefit to New Jersey, the state has systematically shirked its responsibility to invest the dollars necessary to create a world-class public transit system that is reliable and affordable.
The New Jersey For Transit coalition released a new report, Stuck at the Station, to discuss the devastating consequences of 15 years of declining investment in New Jersey’s public transit system and call for a course correction. Since 2002, New Jersey’s annual capital investment in maintaining, repairing and expanding its core public transit assets has dropped by an inflation-adjusted 19 percent, even as ridership has grown by 20 percent.
An array of citizens, state and local environmental groups filed a lawsuit against the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) for promulgated regulations on coastal development –the first since Hurricane Sandy – that were finalized last summer. Environment New Jersey, Save Barnegat Bay and residents from Eagleswood along the Barnegat Bay filed a notice of appeal with the state Superior Court to challenge the NJDEP’s omnibus coastal regulations, which amended coastal permit program rules and the Coastal Zone Management Rules. The NJDEP overhaul received vociferous public opposition.
