Adopt The Morristown Train Station!
NJ TRANSIT just relaunched its Adopt-A-Station program with a new partnership with American Express!
Community groups can “adopt” their local train station to maintain its character as a focal point of their neighborhood by planting flowers, performing light landscaping and maintenance, and removing litter.
As part of the program, NJ TRANSIT will provide community groups with supplies such as safety vests, gloves, and trash bags thanks to the generous sponsorship from American Express. In addition, the community groups are recognized at the station through signage.
“In many towns across New Jersey, the NJ TRANSIT train station is the gateway to a community,” said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti. “The Adopt-A-Station program is a great way for civic groups to take pride in their hometown station as the welcoming point into their towns.”
The relaunch of the Adopt-A-Station program is made possible through a generous sponsorship with American Express.
As part of the adoption agreement, community groups agree to:
- Remove litter at least 1 (to 4) time(s) a year
- Provide light landscaping and maintenance
- Plant/care for flowers, small trees, and shrubs
- Arrange a concert series or entertainment by local community groups
What NJ TRANSIT is committed to doing for your group:
- Provide safety vests
- Provide trash bags and dispose of all trash collected
- Provide directional support as needed
- Encourage you to suggest any additional ideas for improvement
