  1. As per the Garage Manager Oradell will not be getting any new buses I don’t know where this phantom order of D4000CT you all speak of is coming from Oradell will be receiving 40 foot Buses from Wayne & Meadowlands it sounds like Meadowlands will become a fully 45 foot garage there is talk of them getting XD60’s Oradell will only get new buses when a suitable location is found and a garage is built this is just my presumption I could be wrong
  2. Big Tree Garage , Hilton Garage & Orange Garage are apart of the Central Division
  3. The 355 Isn’t assigned to Wayne Township Garage the 355 is assigned to Meadowlands Garage and 355/356 Ironbound Garage I don’t understand why Oradell Garage didn’t get any of that work being that it’s in Bergen County where the mall is located the union isn’t doing right by personnel
  4. And I’ve never gotten NJT idea of purchasing equipment for contracted operators before taking care of their own operation laughable
  5. Still waiting for Oradell to get new equipment I highly doubt MCI is making any more 40 footers that’s a whole different fabrication process and by now NJT would have placed that order all the people in Bergen county do is complain on social media about the raggedy buses that’s not helping their cause they need to put fire to Murphy’s ass or ask the folks on Staten Island what it took to get new equipment from the MTA
  6. Have you checked you Spam/Junk mail folders if you haven't that would be a great place to start if the correspondence isn't there i would give them a call
  7. I've heard numerous accounts that NICE is supposed to be headed back to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is there anyone else who have heard the same
  8. This is a step in the right direction modernizing the way fare media is collected eliminating jobs I don't agree with you need eyes and ears to be a deterrent and in case of an emergency who will customers/passengers immediately alert to an issue that has arisen
  9. I've worked in the Transportation Industry for a number of years now I came to New Jersey Transit with the notion that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and boy does that ring true the stigma that this is a world class agency to work for holds no weight they tout the hiring of 500 Bus Operator but of the 500 how many have quit they do nothing to retain talent they force bus operators into garages that are geographically inconvenient and then request that they attach a letter along with the request stating or should i say begging like a desperado on why they need the transfer management is a joke you call phone numbers and get no answer as if they're busy which they are not even worse you leave a voicemail message and get no reply Phil Murphy is no savior and Keven Corbett is a joke they ran Veronique Hakim out for reasons unknown with yesterdays incident on 495 they dropped the ball if the riding public thought they would get alerts don't feel bad the employee notification system is a joke i never received an alert the agency is broken beyond repair the New York Times needs to do an investigative report which I'm sure would be blistering and scathing
  10. New York is in better shape than NJT I can speak from experience I'm sure New York isn't putting mechanically deficient buses on the road lets talk about buses with no horns that's how old the equipment is which mean they should have been aged out of service yet they are still being placed into revenue service just because an agency doesn't want to deal with a specific manufacturer doesn't mean they don't have their "shit" together i'm sure they have specific reasons for not going with MCI at the moment
  11. You are absolutely correct the fare collection system currently being used is at best antiquated NJT is the only system in the U.S. to my knowledge that is using Railroad type protocols for surface transit and it leads to a lot of inefficiencies such as idle times at stops and a host of other issues important to bus operation they need to work on an acceptable fare collection system that is universal throughout the entire system it is incomprehensible that a transit agency scope and size hasn't updated their fare collection system
