Inscription.  The Bridgewater Train Station is dedicated to the memory of Arthur L. Reuben, 1921 – 1999.

A founder of the Raritan Valley Line Coalition, and a member of and Legislative Agent for the New Jersey Association of Railroad Passengers, and former Director of the Somerset County Planning Board, Art Reuben was a visionary. He turned the nearly abandoned Calco Station – now known as Bridgewater Station – into a regional transit hub. His significant efforts have enhanced mobility, promoted quality of life, and protected the environment. For his efforts and success, we thank and honor him.
