On Tuesday, September 24, NJ TRANSIT honored the late Congressman Bob Franks during a dedication ceremony at Union Station on the Raritan Valley Line.
Governor Chris Christie, Congressman Franks' wife Fran, and other family, friends and colleagues gathered together to unveil a special plaque at the station, highlighting Mr. Franks' many transportation achievements during his 21 years of public service as a New Jersey Assemblyman and a U.S. Congressman. They included authoring the original New Jersey Transportation Trust Fund, working to modernize NJ TRANSIT's bus and rail fleet - including our popular bi-level railcars - and securing the federal funds used to build Union Station.
Congressman Franks' contribution will benefit NJ TRANSIT customers for generations to come.
