Crowding

Sure enough, the cuts in service have created incredible amounts of crowding. Couple that with the lack of properly working air conditioning and the cars get hot awfully quick.

Check out the comments on the site! A quote from the article:

Coming soon for NJ Transit rail commuters who just started paying 25 percent higher fares: service cuts of at least two trains per line, according to a Wednesday Star-Ledger article.

NJ Transit expects to lose riders after rate hike

Your comments: NJ Transit expects to lose riders after rate hike

I've decided that indeed it is cheaper to drive to work. I know I am not alone. NJTransit is shooting itself in the foot with this fare increase, as I believe way more riders than they think will no longer be using the service.

NJ.com has a opinion posting about this topic, where folks are weighing in about how they are being priced out of using NJTransit as well. Here's the link:
http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2010/04/your_comments_nj_transit_expec....

An excerpt:
NJ Transit knows there are commuters who will avoid the new record-tying fare hike by finding another way to commute. The Star-Ledger reports that transit officials have a name for that kind of exodus - "diversion" - and NJ Transit expects there will be a 5 percent diversion after the rate increase kicks in May 1.

This article is picking up comments from commuters in the NJ.com community. Here's one from dontgivein:

I have a prediction -- many riders are already prepared for this and won't be taking the train. A lot of car pooling is being planned right now. NJ Transit will be shocked at the loss of riders. I can envision a loss of more than 10 percent.

It now makes more sense to drive to Weehawken, park the car and take a ferry to get to midtown Manhattan vs. taking the train into Penn Station.

Adios NJ Transit!
