    New Jersey Transit - Random Thoughts Thread

    So yesterday I’m in bed on my day off and got called by Lakeland to do a job. That job happened to be a Gladstone Branch trip. I operated the 4:56 out of Gladstone and had to let people know as much as possible via my horn that there was no train, just a bus. I get back to the terminal in Dover when I’m done and ask the dispatcher: How much you wanna bet this is due to engineer shortage?

    Coach USA 351 Bus Action Early August

    Was that the Jets game?
  4. You also have some bus operators looking to cross over to rail side which is essentially robbing Peter to pay Paul....
  5. The thing with that is: I had lived in Brooklyn and was working for Community Coach in Paramus; when I got my paycheck I saw that I was getting taxed as a New York resident and working in New Jersey and barely had enough money to cross the GW 😖. Wonder if they see their paycheck the would be engineers would either quit or be like me and move to Jersey

    New Jersey Transit - Random Thoughts Thread

    Just finished a day trip which I had to tell a girl/woman to Please use text instead of being on her cell phone (as per regulation). She gets to Dover and tells dispatcher I was talking to a passenger as I was driving. So she’s gonna lie about me after I corrected her? Hope to God I never bump into her again....
  9. Because they consider themselves too big to fail...

    Double decker X17J MTA bus to run to Midtown this week

    I don’t know if it’s been mentioned or not, but if the MTA is concerned with keeping with on time scheduling, I’d be concerned about loading and unloading times at stops, then again hoping to get past the 16E toll plaza off the NJ Turnpike to AND from 495 with that traffic, it’s a wonder the issue of OTP would be brought up at all. Even so, seems to me that the top should be reserved just for end to end travel alone

    Privates and More, Part 1

    Around the time the Super Bowl was in town, SR announced a push for those lines abandoned by Rockland Coaches (the 11C and 20/84 as Q101 mentioned). Their primary business beforehand was Atlantic City line runs in addition to the Charters. I drove for them for a while and one of the reasons I left was the downfall of AC which came to fruition a year after I left for Lakeland (2012 ish). Saddle River sliced up a lot of their Atlantic City lines and had to adjust fire (if you will), hence their plan to get into Commuter work
