Dear Editor,

We, the undersigned organizations, respectfully call upon the Governor, our elected representatives in Trenton, the Mayor and City Council, and the administrations of NJ Transit and NJDOT to do whatever it takes in their power to continue the vital bus service being eliminated by the A&C Bus corporation to Jersey City’s West Side neighborhood.

This will dramatically cut bus access, creating hardship for thousands of residents and businesses.

This service is slated to end on 10/31, and we are asking for your help with this immediately, as time is running out.
