Re: NJ governor signs law requiring NJT to conduct feasibility study for RVL one-seat ride to NYP

You are correct. But that's basically due to the terrible service, not because it wouldn't be useful. The line is run like it's 1950 there.
I used to live along the Montauk branch considerably east of Ronkonkoma, and would drive to Ronkonkoma (even instead of using the Montauk branch) just because the service was good. I would have instead not driven West to to konkoma, and just up to the mainline, if they had a usable service East of Ronkonkoma.
Now, I actually live along the Ronkonkoma branch East of Ronkonkoma, a tually walking distance to it no less, and still drive to ronkonkoma.
Ronkonkoma isn't the sea of cars and huge ridership because it's such a swi going busy place, but instead because it's the artificial end of commuter service, and good service. People drive from North, Northeast, East, Southeast, and South of Ronkonkoma, just because that's where the good service is and ends.
