Concerned South Jersey Citizens Speak about Impact of ACRL Shutdown in Newark

Last Edited:

On Wednesday, February 13th, a group of concerned citizens from South Jersey made the long trip up to Newark to make their voices heard at a New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) meeting.

SNJ Today's Nor'easter Nick Pittman, along with Second District Senator Chris Brown, arranged a bus trip up to the monthly board meeting of NJ Transit to make sure those impacted by the shutdown of the Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) were heard.

Though the topic of the meeting was not the ACRL, during the pubic comment section, Pittman spoke along with about half a dozen other South Jersey residents and leaders, including Atlantic County Freeholders Amy Gatto and John Risley.

Officials with NJ Transit suspended the ACRL back in September with promises to reopen it at the beginning of this year and now they say the rail line will not open until as late as June.
