James S. Simpson Transportation Commissioner & NJ TRANSIT Board Chairman
NEWARK, NJ - Following Transportation ..., 11 June 2012 [cached]
NEWARK, NJ - Following Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chairman James Simpson's call for a speedy resolution to customer and bicycle advocates' concerns about bike access at train stations, the NJ TRANSIT Board of Directors today adopted a new Bike Aboard Program that expands travel options for cyclists effective July 1, 2012, enabling them to bring their bicycles onboard trains at all stations.
"We heard from many customers who felt that NJ TRANSIT's bicycle policy was too restrictive to make riding their bikes to and from train stations a viable option," said Commissioner Simpson."In taking a fresh look at the existing policy, we found that some simple adjustments would enable us to significantly expand access for our bicycle-riding customers."
In response to customer feedback and comments from the bicycling community, Commissioner Simpson and Executive Director Weinstein asked the North and South Jersey Transportation Advisory Committees (TACs) to review NJ TRANSIT's existing bicycle policy and make recommendations that could safely reduce restrictions limiting bicycle access on trains.
