Customer feedback results in new options

October 6, 2004

NEWARK, NJ — Responding to customer feedback from a recent community forum, NJ TRANSIT today announced new discount options for commuters at the Ramsey Route 17 parking deck. Customers now have the opportunity to purchase an annual pass for $550 — $170 less than the cost of buying 12 individual monthly passes and $490 less than paying the daily rate each business day. NJ TRANSIT also introduced a three-month pass for $165 and a six-month pass for $300.

“These discounts provide another incentive for customers to use the new station and its 1,200 parking spots,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director George D. Warrington.

Customers must purchase their passes by April 1, 2005 to take advantage of this offer.

Customers can travel to Hoboken Terminal or to Secaucus Junction where they have access to midtown Manhattan rail service.
