Commuters who use the NJTransit Pascack Valley Line train are NOW restricted from using Williams Avenue for access to the NJ Transit Teterboro stop waiting area. NJ Transit has completed constructing a fence, without NOTICE or SIGNAGE, that now prevents commuters access from Williams Avenue or any location due Northwest of the stop. This includes Hasbrouck Heights and Lodi specifically.

The $100,000 constructed fence prevents countless of commuters who walk via Hasbrouck Heights area (west of the train stop) with no convenient access to the waiting area. This fence also prevents local workers from accessing Hasbrouck Heights side business' from Teterboro area, many use bicycles to get to their jobs.

There is no convenient pedestrian access to the train stop.
The stop has now been rendered useless to ~75% of those who actually use the location.
Citing "Safety Concerns" NJ Transit has made an UNFAIR and IRRATIONAL decision!

Furthermore, "Teterboro\Williams Ave" stop is extremely limited, wait listed parking lot not to mention its well above average cost ($480/year!).

The ignored and forgotten stop is bypassed on weekends and now further being delivered another blow to many of the loyal passengers.

Local commuters are urging NJ Transit to reconsider this decision for its passenger, i.e. customers!

Solutions could have been and still can be implemented to prevent this,signers of this petition have chimed in with great suggestions that can be implemented. A fence, is NOT one of them:

1) apedestrian crossing w/crossing gate and flashing train signal at dead-end Williams Ave
2) opening ONE train door on the Heights side with a monitored conductor present.

Why this permanent obstacle have been put into place is an unfair measure and a disservice to loyal and local NJTransit customers.

Local commuters are being forced to walk on Highways at night to circumvent this fence, that is simply NOT safer!!!

    Over a year that this is going on. Are we to believe that only a little over 100 people use this train?

    I now can't use this station at all to visit my friend in Hasbrouck Heights, where I used it a couple of times a week before.

    May I also point out that the station is almost invisible from the street and there are no signs marking its presence. Not only is it nearly impossible to reach by foot or by bicycle, it is also incredibly difficult to reach and/or find by car, especially at night.
