PUBLIC HEARING BEFORE SENATE TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE ON COMMUTER RAIL SERVICE IN NEW JERSEY HELD IN TRENTON, NEW JERSEY ON OCTOBER 11, 1977

The Committee examined what is being done to improve commuter rail service and performance. Examined were issues as regards progress on the electrification project for the North Jersey Coast Train, formerly known as the New York and Long Branch and the reasons for the proposed closings of grade crossings in Monmouth and Ocean counties and the process through which these closings are determined. It is well known that the performance of commuter rail service in New Jersey is inadequate. Riders of Amtrak are faced with proposed service cutbacks. The Committee has invited representatives from the state, Federal Government, Conrail, Amtrak, counties, labor organizations, and the riding public to examine commuter rail service and to discuss ways of improving it. The document contains statements from the Department of Transportation as well as statements from Amtrak and Conrail. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
