NJ Transit to Use Funds for Renovations and Improvements

Washington - Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ) and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today announced that the Federal Transportation Administration has awarded NJ Transit $495,000 in federal funds to restore and expand the inbound/east-bound passenger waiting and shelter building at the Bloomfield Train Station.

"These renovations at the Bloomfield Train Station will provide a safer and more convenient environment for commuters," said Sen. Lautenberg. "As more and more passengers continue to use NJ Transit to get to and from work, it is vital that we continue to renovate and improve our train stations."

"These renovation funds for the Bloomfield rail station should benefit commuters who rely on New Jersey's transit system," said Sen. Menendez. "An investment in improved transportation options such as this is a wise investment."

The rail station at Bloomfield is part of the Montclair-Boonton Line and transports thousands of commuters daily between Hackettstown and New York City. The Bloomfield passenger facility provides shelter from inclement weather and other services.
