TO THE PUBLIC:
On the 2r!th of February, 190S. the firs, tunnels
under the Hudson River were opened to public
usp. Twenty-six years had elapsed since the
work was begun in 1S82. Two disastrous failures
had occurred and many lives had been lost in the
attempt to master the extraordinary difficulties
The initial operation was between Hoboken and
10th Street and Sixth Avenue. A few months
later '.Mrd Street wa reached: and two and a half
years later (November 10, 19101 trains began to
run to 33d Street. . .
Prior to the advent of the tunnels, ny one
going from Hoboken to points on lith Avenue,
paid 3 cents to cross the river by ferry, changed
in New York to the surface cars, and for an addi
tional fare of o cents (total 8 cents) was delivered
to his destination. This is true as to every one
except the railroad passenger, whose ferriage is
included in his railroad ticket, but who, never
theless, indirectly pays the ferry charge.
r Refore the tunnels were opened, the rate of fare
was seriously discussed by the Company's direc
tor". They believed that at least the same fare
as that charged by the ferry and the trolley,
namely, 8 cents, should be paid for the superior
After long consideration, however, It was de
termined to try a uniform rate of 5 cents
(although the Company had the right at that time
to make it 8 cents! j with the hope that sufficient
traffic would be developed between New York
and New Jersey to justify it. After almost four
years of trial, it has been clearly demonstrated
that the Tunnel Company is not justified in carry
ing passengers between New Jersey and 6th
Avenue points, or uptown New York, for a 5-cent
Since the uptown tunnels were opened, the
Company has extended its service to the Erie and
Pennsylvania Railroad stations and to Grove
Street, in Jersey City. From all of these points
to 6th Avenue, New York, the rate by ferry and
trolley was previously, and is to-day, 8 cents, not
withstanding, the Tunnel Company voluntarily
made the rate 5 cents.
In the near future the tunnel service will be
extended to Summit Avenue (the Heights Section)
in Jersey City. Hetween this section and 6th
Avenue points, the present combined rate by
trolleys and ferry is 13 cents. It is the intention
of the Tunnel Company to make the rate 7 cents
between these points.
The tunnel service has marked advantages over
the ferry and trolley service. By ferry and trolley
from Hoboken to 33d Street the time is 30 minutes
against 14 minutes by tunnel; from the Erie sta
tion to 33d Street it is 39 minutes against 13 min
utes by tunnel.
Thus we have the unusual and anomalous con
dition of the mpm'or facility receiving a lower
rate than the inferior facility.
The tunnel system is now practically completed,
with the exception of the extension from 33d
Street to the Grand Central Station. The entire
interest on its bonded debt and all fixed charges
must, within the near future, be charged against
the earnings from the Railroad and the Terminal
On the business thus far developed, and with a
uniform 5-cent fare, the Company hat not earned
interest on its bond, taxes and other fixed charges.
The burden of taxation alone ( notwithstanding
the particularly fair attitude of the New Jersey
authoritiesi is enormous. lor the fiscal year
ended June 30, 1911, taxes aggregated $414,588.54.
For the present fiscal year on the basis of assess
ments already made, they will be increased to ap
proximately $478,281.54. If the company was
exempt from taxation (like the New York Subway;
it could continue to carry passengers for a uni
form o-eent fare.
Under the circumstances, a readjustment of rates
has, therefore, become necessary.
The tunnel lines between Jersey City, Hoboken
and Sixth Avenue involve an average longer haul
and cost decidedly more to construct than the tun
nel lines to downtown New York. It seems, there
fore, reasonable and logical that, in a readjustment
of rates, the fare to uptown Sew York should be
more than the fare to downtown Sew York.
For these reasons, it has been decided to increase
beginning December L'4, 1911 1 the rate between
Jersey City. Hoboken and Sixth Avenue, or up
town New York, to 7 cents. This is 1 cent le3s
than the existing rate i8 cents) by ferry and trolley
between the water front in New Jersey and up
town New York.
The rate from Summit Avenue Station (when
opened) to uptown New York will be 7 cents and
to dou-nfotcn New York 6 cents. This is 6 cents
less than the existing rate by ferry and trolleys
'rom Summit Avenue to uptown New York, and
3 cents less to downtown New York.
The present rate of 5 cents between local sta
tions in New Jersey and between local station!
in New York will be maintained.
With this increase in the uptown rate to 7 cents,
and with the new service put into operation be
tween Newark and New York, and w ith a reason
able growth in traffic over the system, the Com
pany will earn its fixed charges with a reasonable
surplus for equipment, renewals and contingencies.
It is needless to comment on the fact that the
earning of fixed charges is absolutely essential to
the Company's integrity. The Company is cer
tainly entitled to and must have a living rate of
It should be remembered that the New York
City Subway, a far less costly and difficult under
taking, was financed with the credit of the City of
New York, t low rates of interest, and is exempt
from taxation. The Hudson Tunnels, on the other
hand, have been financed by private capital, at
higher rates of interest, and with no exemption
from taxation. This great system, with all of it
hazards and risks, has received no financial aid
from the State or Municipal governments on
either side of the Hudson River.
We submit the facts with the hope that the just
ness of the company's position will be recognized
and with the belief that the public is willing to
support an enterprise that has been consistently
managed, from the beginning, in the public interest.
The Hudson and Manhattan Railroad Co. is now
and has always been independent. No railroad
company in New Jersey or elsewhere has ever had
any financial interest in this company or any
voice in its management.
