I think it’s time you an I talk about he New Jersey Transit.
The New Jersey Transit Corporation, marketed as NJ Transit (NJT; stylized as NJ TRANSIT), is a state-owned public transportation system that serves the US state of New Jersey, along with portions of New York State and Pennsylvania. It operates bus, light rail, and commuter rail services throughout the state, connecting to major commercial and employment centers both within the state and in the adjacent major cities of New York and Philadelphia.
It also sucks, and I mean 24-7 sucks. Now, I realize it’s a big complicated system. There are many stops and many miles of track. It’s out side and the elements in this part of the country can be exceptionally curel. That said, I don’t care. I’m 13 miles from Penn Station and this rail turd can’t seem to keep the wheels turning for a full week. Today I’m standing at Brick Church in the rain waiting for a train that’s just been canceled. The 8:12 is one of the busiest trains on a weekday morning and it will not be running. This is one of those very frustrating rock and a hard place moments. There really is no other option so you’re forced to put up with it.
At this point I’m just complaining so I’ll stop. No real point to be made here. Really I’m just boad waiting for a train that’s not coming.
Update: NJT came over the loud speaker and said because of the cancelation they would add a Brick Church stop to one of the other midtown direct trains. Then, 10 minutes later they announced that plan was canceled do to the train being over crowded…. The winter + NJT has pushed me right to the edge!
This is the Brick Church stop this morning.
