New Jersey Transit is expanding weekday service by more than 40 percent and adding a full schedule of weekend service for the first time since April 1985 beginning on Sept. 8.
“This expansion of service for our Avenel customers will spur economic growth in and around Woodbridge and improve quality of life for the hundreds of customers who use this station every day,” Transit President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Corbett said in a statement.
“It’s also a great example of our new strategy to ‘Engage, Inform, and Improve,’ which has us being far more responsive to customer requests and concerns. In this case, our customers asked for more service,” Corbett said.
“I would like to thank President and CEO Kevin Corbett and NJ Transit for the expansion of service at the Avenel Station,” Woodbridge Mayor John McCormac said in a statement. “Station Village at Avenel, the Avenel Performing Arts Center, and the NJ Transit North Jersey Coast Line commuter train station serving Avenel represents a $50 million transit-related development project that included improvements to the NJ Transit commuter train station.”
