  1. I didn’t know Academy had a shortage of drivers to fulfill the NJT contracted routes such as the 119 https://jerseydigs.com/public-meeting-nj-transit-119-bus-service-heights-jersey-city-to-manhattan/
  2. Does anybody know which of the Saddle River MCIs or NABIs went to CUSA Community Coach?
  3. It happened when the 95 was discontinued due to the completion of the Pulaski Skyway rehab
  4. https://www.philly.com/transportation/patco-schedule-change-late-nights-stations-closed-20190507.html
  5. I think when they meant Express Buses, using the MTA term, since all their MCIs and Prevost buses are called Express Bus. But yeah they said more bus runs starting from 60th on Blvd East on the 128, since the other 165, 166, 168 buses that make it to 60th St are standing room only
  6. West New York Mayor Felix Roque greeted commuters at the intersection of 60th Street and Boulevard East this morning to let them know that NJ Transit is increasing the number of their express buses from eight to 13 express buses during rush hour. https://hudsoncountyview.com/mayor-roque-says-more-express-nj-transit-buses-coming-to-west-new-york/
  7. AC Rail line will be restored on Sunday, May 12 with new schedules, including restoration of train 4610 that was cut by the Christie Administration https://www.njtransit.com/sa/sa_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=ServiceAdjustmentTo&AdjustmentId=19246
  8. Now the current Governor is blaming the Chris Christie effects of underinvestment to NJT https://www.nj.com/sports/2019/04/its-christies-fault-governor-says-of-nj-transits-wrestlemania-snafu.html
  9. https://www.nj.com/news/2019/04/nj-transit-blames-wwe-after-thousands-of-wrestlemania-fans-stranded-in-the-rain.html
  10. It appears Academy is operating all the 136 I-195 trips.... the GTFS data shows that in the block_id column and they're signed as 136X, which is why you may not see them on mybusnow unless they're using the old 8500 series MCIs
  11. I was hoping for more trips added to meet up with demand for the FanDuel sports book at the Meadowlands Racetrack despite buses not being able to enter the lot on game days/concerts at the stadium... hopefully a new agreement would be in place by football season
  12. https://www.njtransit.com/sa/sa_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=ServiceAdjustmentTo&AdjustmentId=19414
  13. I thought Newton Ave can't fit all the 45 footer Cruisers and the turns on the 409 are too tight for them?
  14. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-16/nj-transit-locomotives-idled-by-shutdown-as-inspectors-off-job
  15. So like Academy, the Rockland Coaches don't have the stained steel on the bottoms
  16. I doubt NJT will be able to run early getaway trains day before before Thanksgiving as well as before Christmas break.
  17. They were building a second track from Farmingdale to Ronkonoma
  18. Some old MCIs were sent back to South Jersey to operate the Rt 340 shuttles during the AC rail line shutdown
  19. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/08/nyregion/nj-transit-amtrak-accident.html
  20. Has anyone been taking NJT bus or rail to Meadowlands to bet on football today in the racetrack's sportsbook?
  21. Gov Murphy and NJ Transit admin held a joint Press Conference today... he admitted he underestimated the mess left by the Christie administration
  22. NJ Transit plans to shut down the Atlantic City Line for five months starting Sept. 4 and redeploy its personnel and equipment to deal with shortages of both elsewhere in the state. The plan, which was described in an internal email obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK New Jersey, shows the struggles of the statewide public transportation system. https://www.northjersey.com/story/news/transportation/2018/08/03/nj-transit-atlantic-city-line-shut-down-5-months/899063002/ They also plan to end the off-peak one seat rides to/from NY Penn on the Raritan Valley Line Official Press Release
  23. http://abc7ny.com/traffic/greyhound-drivers-strand-passengers-at-port-authority/3847574/ some of the blame may have been allocating bus runs to Atlantic City. I even saw Bolt Bus coaches in AC a few times cuz Greyhound didn't have enough buses or bus drivers to cover the rest of the system
  24. Caug I checked the GTFS this week on the summer bus schedule and found there will be 4 Newton Ave, 2 Egg Harbor, 1 Washington Twp drivers for the 316 Majority of the 316 trips would be the older MCI D4000s from Newton Ave. Newton Ave trip times are 8:30am, 9:30am, 3:30pm, 7:30pm from Philly. We could see 2 Newton Ave MCI cruisers at a time on the 316
  25. As per Gov. Murphy's bus initiative: Bus Route 95 will be discontinued, all 65/66 trips will operate to Newark Penn Station, with express trips added to 66 Additional trips added to the 119, 154, 156, 159 455: all weekday trips will serve Paulsboro, departing at :45 past the hour and :56 past the hour from Cherry Hill Mall 600, 603, and 613: Will no longer operate via Groves Mill Road between Route 1 and Quaker Bridge Mall. All trips will operate via the entrance ramp from Route 1. Usual summer shore service: 67, 137, 316, 319, 510, 551, 552 same as last year http://www.njtransit.com/sa/sa_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=ServiceAdjustmentTo&AdjustmentId=17927
