Study Bares Transit Woes in New Jersey

Though California is famous for its gridlocked freeways, no state beats New Jersey when it comes to congested highways. Commuters in New Jersey also have the third-longest travel time to work — exceeding California’s — even though the state also has the second-highest percentage of mass transportation use.

 

The figures, in a study from Rutgers University on the public’s perceptions of investment in transportation, come at a time when Gov. Jon S. Corzine is pushing a plan to raise tolls drastically to pay for such ambitious projects as widening the New Jersey Turnpike and building rail tunnels into Manhattan.

 

The study, prepared by the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers, does not explicitly take a stand on the governor’s plan, which is opposed by every Republican in the Legislature and by many residents.

And those who oppose it, are the ones b*tching and complaining while sitting in traffic. They don't want a raised toll to pay for wider h'ways and a rail tunnel(s), but they still want them. Of course they don't want to pay for it. I hate hypocrites and bigots.......

Geez, they need to give another place attention away from THE Tunnel and onto the Bayonne Bridge. They need to redo the bridge to ( 1 ) make it wider, and ( 2 ) run HBLR on it to SI (at least to Eltingville Transit Center)! The current bridge does have rail provisions but its best to do some work on that bridge.......
