Re: NJ Transit Woes, 10/18/2021

It makes sense that the M&E line would be delayed by a downed tree near Chatham.

What I find confusing is that the problem with that tree could cause delays on Gladstone, which is a different line.

Waiting room benches

I was in Hoboken earlier today, and I saw the benches in the waiting room, uncovered and unbarricaded.

This may be the start of something, as NJT said would happen.

A case study in Pittsburgh

An advocate I know in Philadelphia sent an article to me. It's about neighborhood advocates in Pittsburgh who fought against a transit project that would spend a lot of money, yet it would not improve mobility in their neighborhood (according to them, anyway). Their view seems to be gaining traction...

Re: Station Inspections; old business
