(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats John F. McKeon and John S. Wisniewski prohibiting New Jersey Transit from denying access to individuals accompanied by guide or service dogs on public transportation services was approved last week by an Assembly panel.
"These dogs provide an invaluable service to individuals who may otherwise not be able to get around on their own. Not allowing these dogs on a bus or a train essentially denies these individuals access to transportation services that are meant for public use," said McKeon (D-Essex/Morris).
"These dogs are specifically trained to make routine tasks like riding the train possible for individuals with disabilities. There is no reason why individuals who rely on these dogs for assistance should not be allowed to use a public service like other residents," said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex).
