Sitting here in Hoboken, waiting for the 6:14 Gladstone train to depart, a woman came on asking the conductor if she was on this train yesterday the conductor told her, possibly.... (i was, i know she was) the woman said well, i lost my rail pass (that SUCKS) and was wondering if anyone had found it. the conductor lady said no, and then proceeded to ask where the woman was going. Short hills. She told her don't worry about the fare.

SOLID.

NJT should really hire more of this caliber of person to work their equipment. Maybe we wouldn't hate them so much?

Report: New Jersey pulls plug on ARC Tunnel

Three sources familiar with the $8.7 billion tunnel under the Hudson river from NJ, say, barring an unexpected, last-minute change of heart from Governor Chris Christie, the ARC transit tunnel under the Hudson river is dead. The sources say Christie will likely announce this week that he’s restructuring NJ’s portion of the money to go to roads. The FTA and the Port Authority will recoup their $3 billion each, though the Port’s money will likely go into other regional projects.
