The people of South Jersey are absolutely sick and tired of being stepped on and disregarded. It's time to take a stand against a corrupt organization that believes in spreading misinformation and outright lies. Over 2,000 commuters a day rely on the Atlantic City Rail Line to get them to and from work. 

In August, NJ Transit promised the line would be operational again on January 1st, citing Positive Train Control as the reason for suspension. We are entering the second week of January and there is still no service on the line. Recent reports from NJT have suggested it may take until MARCH to re-open. This is simply unacceptable. 

Let's tell Director Corbett and Governor Murphy that we won't stand idly by as they rip the ONLY rail line from under our feet and substitute slow bus service. Let's also demand an improved schedule that allows for more trains to run at better times. The line could be a valuable commuter asset but things need to change. I've been fighting for this hard since August and I need your continued support to get more traction here. PLEASE sign and SHARE this petition with your friends, family and co-workers. Let's take a look at time of the facts:

1. NO Rail Line in the COUNTRY was shutdown for PTC installation, not a single one.

2. NJ Transit told us January 1st would see the resumption of service.

3. PTC Installation was COMPLETED on the ACL in NOVEMBER, yet we continue to wait.

4. NJ Transit leased 7 Septa locomotives in December at a tune of $315k that could be used as substitute cab control cars on the Atlantic City Line, but instead they sit dormant buried in the Morrisville PA train yard, showing yet again how fiscally irresponsible the transit agency is.

5. While PTC was being installed on the Atlantic City Line, SRNJ (the freight railroad) continued operations further showing us there was NO reason to shut the line down other than to reallocate equipment and crews to North Jersey. 

South Jersey matters. Let's make our voices heard.
