NJ Transit

I live in Newark and i frequently catch the number 25 bus home. A few days ago they had a parade of buses going down the opposite side of the street most of them near empty. It was 4 buses to be exact. But here I am waiting on my bus, and these clowns are holding Macy's parade on Springfield ave while i wait for 30 mins for a bus THAT'S NEVER COMING! The schedules are a joke there might as well be no schedules because they are never followed. Either Too early or too late. NJ TRANSIT IS THE WORST PIECE OF TRASH TRANSIT COMPANY I HAVE EVER HAD THE DISPLEASURE OF RIDING. F*** THEM!

New Jersey commuters got a step closer to a one-seat ride to Grand Central Thursday.

James Simpson, the federal transit administrator for the U.S. Department of Transportation, said it was common sense to extend the commuter rail tunnel planned to terminate at Penn Station east to the area around Grand Central Terminal.

"We have to find a way while the machines are underground to bring that project further east," Simpson said.

The first tunnel being built under the Hudson River in a century -- known as Access to the Regions Core, or ARC -- is expected to ease crowding on the commuter trains to Penn Station. For years, and particularly in a report released last month, the Regional Plan Association has called for bringing the tunnel to Madison Avenue, then north to 44th Street where it could hopefully be connected by a pedestrian tunnel to Grand Central.
