Mass MCI order stopped as a result of Christie's executive order stopping TTF funded projects.

Recommended Posts

Smh. I was so looking forward to seeing more new buses roll out. I hope this problem gets solved soon

The situation goes much farther than just these buses, the problems are much worse.

With the state's transportation budget completely depleted, there's no way he can repair the crumbling infrastructure within New Jersey. Bridges, roads, tunnels and a lot more are crumbling because of his incompetence.

I do agree though, he needs to be impeached.

He cannot even take care of the transit system correctly. His corruption broke the TTF. Screwing everybody over. Aging buses are not being taken care of.

 

We need an impeachment, and fast.

To be fair, it's not like Christie inherited a perfectly well run and maintained network of roads. I'm not saying he didn't make things worse, but jersey roads haven't been in a state of good repair for a long time now.

This may be a situation similar to when New York City went bankrupt in the 70s. Maybe the federal government will step in and help

Any update on this, since the tax increase was signed? Has production resumed, or are we still waiting for the tax to go into effect first?

I've seen that the new MCIs for Community Coach that were being held in Piscataway are now on the property. I've also read that State Senators made a bill to repel the gas tax *eyeroll*. When I was discussing this with a co-worker he didn't seem the least bit surprised, even though I heard through the grapevine there's supposed to be a box on a ballot to show that the gas tax goes solely to the TTF and nowhere else when we vote in November. He also scoffed at that, saying that Transit money allocated from the government hasn't been going where is should (if you know what I mean), which is kinda pathetic in and of itself.

I saw bus 17042 (unmarked) early Thursday afternoon along I-380 southbound around Mount Pocono(I was heading northbound); the message board displayed said "Test Bus No Passengers".
