The unprofessionalism of NJ Transit astounds me, and they have the nerve to hike the fares.

I would like to take some sort of action, like some sort of class action suit against NJ Transit, because they have made me late six times, and their schedules are NEVER right.

This hike is incredibly stupid, especially since they're NOT raising the gas tax whatsoever!

On a recent late night trip from New York Penn station, I was walking to the train behind a conductor, number 425820, who was also walking towards the train, when she turned her head and SPIT on the escalator of another track as she was walking past. She looked at me and I said, "That was disgusting." to which she replied "Next time It'll be on you."

$401M application to restore Lackawanna Cutoff denied stimulus dollars

Plans to connect a passenger line from Pennsylvania to Hoboken hit a snag when an application for federal stimulus funding was denied.

Is this any way to run a railroad?

Spot-on stuff for our website, here's an excerpt from the editorial blog of Carla Linz Callaway.

NJ Transit officials remain adamant about closing down the only train that gets residents in this part of southern New Jersey to work in Philadelphia on time. You have to wonder what they are thinking — or if they are.

This is the third time this week that I will be late to work thanks to train delays.

I am currently sitting in a train that has been standing still for 35 minutes, despite the alerts on the NJTransit site that say 15-20 minute delays.

This is ridiculous! They are blaming Amtrack and saying that they have no control.
