Improving Infrastructure and Mass Transit Accessibility
- Senator Sweeney has been fighting to renew the Transportation Trust Fund to double local aid to counties and municipalities in an effort to reduce property taxes and improve residents’ commutes. Senator Sweeney recognizes that neglecting the Fund any longer would not be fiscally responsible and sensible funding solutions are needed to sustain and improve New Jersey’s transportation infrastructure and help grow our economy. New Jersey is a logistics state at the crossroads of 60 million people and we must be able to support mobility and create jobs associated with that mobility.
- Senator Sweeney continues to work towards bringing light rail service to various municipalities along the Glassboro – Camden corridor. This project would provide greater convenience to students and working professionals alike, by reducing congestion on the roads. Light Rail will promote smart growth and transit-oriented development and improve the connection between our world-class academic institutions and business and entertainment centers. Public transit is a key focus of our region’s growth and a major element of a renewed Transportation Trust Fund.
