Retribution for NJ Transit & Amtrak Delays

This petition had 121 supporters

Every month riders of NJ Transit and Amtrak pay a hefty fee that has only gone up and up to pay into the "transportation budget." In addition to these fair hikes, New Jersey residents are now paying an additional gas tax that should be contributing towards this "transportation budget."

However, recent events have been absolutely intolerable and inexcusable. Horrific delays, lack of communication with riders, mechanical and operational issues causing severe derailments, unexplained cancellations, and no given explanation or guidance for such events.

Who's to blame? Should we continue to to be expected to allow NJ Transit and Amtrak steal our time and our money? We deserve explanation and reimbursement for the constant inconveniences we are handed. We deserve answers. 

What actions are being taken to fix these constant issues? Will NJ Transit and Amtrak be taking action with the deteriorating tracks, technology, and operational process? Should we continue to pay for a service that doesn't work for us or respect us? Will our governor, Chris Christie, be taking any action against Amtrak or NJ Transit or merely continue to threaten Amtrak? He put down the Gateway Project, which would have been up and running as early as 2018 when first proposed. 

Let's join together and let them know we want answers. Sign and let NJ Transit and Amtrak know that we will not tolerate this poor service. Should we have to go to such lengths as to refuse to pay for next month's service?  

Please, let's always keep in mind that it is not always their employees fault. The person checking tickets or the person at the information booths are not at fault for the terrible, outdated systems.
