The assertion that the Dinky is in jeopardy of being unfunded by New Jersey Transit because of low ridership was debunked by New Jersey Transit at its presentation to Borough Council on June 8.
“The Dinky is doing better than the system overall. So on that basis alone, it’s not something that’s likely to be reduced, because it’s effective compared to everything else. It’s also an important feeder into the Northeast Corridor.”
–John Leon, Senior director of community and government relations for NJ Transit
“If your highest priority is saving the Dinky, approving this project is the surest way to achieve that goal.”
– President Shirley Tilghman, Jan 31, 2011
