One-Seat Ride for Raritan Valley Rail Commuters Would Mean No More Changing Trains In Newark.
A rush hour commute that doesn't require changing trains in Newark is a powerful incentive to attract residents to towns served by the one-seat ride. It cuts down on the stress of the daily, hour-plus trip to New York that is a way of life for thousands of New Jerseyans, thus contributing to better productivity. NON-COMMUTERS: At least one study shows property values increased after one-seat train rides became available on the Morris-Essex Line. Another report by the non-profit Tri-State Transportation Campaign predicts increases of property values of 7% in the first year of one-seat rides. Commuters and non-commuters in all municipalities along the Raritan Valley line deserve a one-seat ride!
