I honestly thought this part of history was behind us , but i guess NJT wants to save money and be more corrupt. Because i think there are some bribes and gifts involved with this. NJT seems to be turning into SEPTA

I really hope not. What is the point of doing away with a relatively non-polluting train and replacing it with smelly busses?

Somehow Princeton and West Windsor are in cahoots. Just look at what WW's mayor wants to do with the train station in PJ. Transit Village?!?!?

Transit villages were designed to 'reinvigorate' under-used train stations. PJ is hardly under-used. I cannot believe the mayor was re-elected for another term. He's going to ruin Princeton Junction (where I live!).

You know, I REALLY hate this, not because I like riding the train over the bus, but because it's a WASTE OF MY TAX MONEY. They do NOT need to spend the money rip up these rails and put in a less efficient bus system that is unlikely to be used as much as the current one. As I said before, I'll say again "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"! There are more important transit matters here in NJ (See mass transit devoid South Jersey)

I'm sure some of you already are, but please please join our 'Save the Princeton Dinky' facebook group or email me on [email]princetondinky@gmail.com[/email]. It may not add up to much, but I still believe there is strength in numbers, and getting some good opinions and ideas together how to fight this upcoming decision! Thank you.

After NJT November Meeting , it turns out the Dinky conversion to Bus Rapid Transit have been scraped. NJT now looking into converting it into a Light Rail line and Streetcar into Downtown Princeton.

That's good to hear!
Thanks for the info.

Now if only it could be extended into townhouse and condo land (WW and Plainsboro) so those people wouldn't have to drive to the train station...
