Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean responded to news that NJ Transit and its rail unions have averted a possible strike next week that would have caused chaos for commuters:
“NJ Transit provides more than 300,000 rides on its rail service every weekday, taking commuters to both work and school.
“A rail strike would have caused gridlock throughout New Jersey, hurt our economy and made the difficult lives of those thousands of commuters even harder.

“I commend both sides for working together to ensure that NJ Transit remains a dependable transportation option for all those who need it in the Garden State.”
