The NJ Transit Hurricane Recovery Thread


mfs NJT459

Recommended Posts

Due to the approaching hurricane, Governor Chris Christie put us under a State of Emergency. And he is considering evacuating the Jersey Shore. How will this affect all the NJ Transit bus and rail routes that serve the Jersey Shore?

They'll keep running up until the storm is here.

 

Bus service to shore points might get suspended when the storm is here if it's bad enough.

 

Trains might still run if the storm is not as strong as it is being predicted right now.

 

(anything can happen in the next three days).

 

He issued the state of emergency as a precautionary measure for today's storms because they expect heavy floods in the Passaic, Essex, and Hudson areas. So it's goes hand and hand with Irene.

It's a Little hurricane everyone making a big deal out of nothing I've been in a category 4 and 5 hurricane with downed tress and flooding.

 

With statements like this which is why stupid people like you dont make it far in life. Now if they dont do anything at all and bank on the fact the storm blows away and then it doesnt and a Katrina situation happens then you going to say they should have did something. Its best to do something now and if not then everyone is going to be yapping at the government as to why they didnt warn anyone. People like you should be banned but yet idiots like you are still on this forum acting like a total jackass. Just because your sorry ass been in a Hurricane before doesnt mean people here in the Northeast has.

 

Funny your talking like you know everything and you cant even spell TREES and your 14 ******* yrs old.

Cape May County issued a mandatory evacuation starting at 8AM 2m. GSP & ACE are getting packed.

 

With an evacuation they should suspend service immediately except in the outbound direction, no word on NJT site yet.

All buses in and out of Atlantic&Cape May Counties are subject to 45-60min delays due to traffic because of the evac. Atlantic County just ordered a mandatory evacuation. I live in Atlantic County, im riding this sucker out lol because NJT said we still have to show up.

All eastbound travel on Routes 47&347 is suspended. the 313 & 552 are affected. Egg Harbor has the last 313 out of philly and i heard hes going via the 553.

 

I have to report 2m(must) and saturday(???) which rules out getting out of here fast enough. My gf just went to walmart to buy a lots of snacks.

So the suspension is starting.

 

What's the purpose of making you report if service is suspended?

this is just like the winter storms where all NJT employees have to report to work regardless of bus/rail service or not... i remember hearing about rescue buses on the Garden State Parkway rescuing snowbound people who were stuck in their cars on the GSP

It's one thing to order employees to report in a curfew/state of emergency, evacuations are different.

We are assisting in getting people out of Atlantic City. I have no idea when im leaving. We have been told we have to stay with our bus. The AC Expressway is the new Cross Bronx. AC bound 553s are ending at the Hamilton Mall and dhing to AC to get people out of there. All casinos except for Harrahs are closed. If this storms gets insane like they say NJT can kiss my ass goodbye! I ain gona die for this shyt. Academy need to get they lazy ******* asses up and get the hell down here with our damn buses.

 

Atlantic City is going to be closed off to anything going on as of tonight. Anyone staying is on there own. All NJT buses are helping to get people out of AC and i have no idea when im leaving. All other buses are ending at pleasantville bus term and dhing to ac to get people out.
