MILLBURN, NJ - The Lakawanna Coalition is rolling out its new initative "Coffee and Commuting" at the Short Hills Train Station on August 17. During morning commuter hours the coalition is looking to hear commuters concerns starting before 6:30 AM and continuing until after 9:00 PM.

A table will be set up near the entrance to the station where commuters can grab a cup of coffee share their thoughts about what they would like to see happen on our railroad and what we can do to help improve your commute and all other transit use.  

The Lackawanna Coalition is an independent non-profit organization that advocates for better service on the Morris & Essex (M&E) and Montclair-Boonton rail lines operated by New Jersey Transit, as well as on connecting transportation. The Coalition was founded in 1979 by commuters in Millburn who were deeply concerned about the quality of their rail service. The service has improved since then under the stewardship of New Jersey Transit, although there are always issues that affect our riders and require our attention. The Lackawanna Coalition is one of the nation’s oldest rail advocacy organizations and has met in Millburn continuously since it was founded over 30 years ago.
