Listening tour stop at the Westfield Train Station @ Westfield Train Station
Mar 6 @ 5:00 pm
Listening tour stop at the Westfield Train Station @ Westfield Train Station | Westfield | New Jersey | United States

Dear Raritan Valley Rail Line commuters:

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Raritan Valley Rail Coalition would like you to know about the upcoming NJ Department of Transportation (DOT) listening tour stop at the Westfield Train station this Wednesday, March 6th beginning at 5 p.m.

Representatives from NJ Transit, NJ DOT—including DOT Commissioner Diana Guiterrez-Scaccetti and NJ Transit Executive Director Kevin Corbett—as well as members of the State Assembly, will be on hand to listen to public concerns about the Raritan Valley Rail line service.

If you are available to go, we encourage you to join us there to make your voice heard in calling for train service improvements—including a “One Seat Ride”—on the Raritan Valley Rail line.

Unfortunately, the tour has been scheduled at a time when many commuters cannot make it.

Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski and Raritan Valley Rail Coalition Chairman Bruce Bergen will be on hand with municipal officials to represent you and voice concerns to the state about the restoration of the one-seat ride and implementation of a full-time one-seat ride.

If you have any questions or wish to stay informed on rail issues, the Raritan Valley Rail Coalition, which also consists of a Mayors’ Alliance and of county and state officials, can be reached on email at [email protected], is on the web at www.raritanvalleyrail.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/raritanvalleyrail and on Twitter at www.twitter.com/rvrailcoalition.
