On May 8th NJ Transit Executive Director Steve Santoro testified in a budget hearing:

"Our scorecard surveys of customers continue and nearly eight of 10 say they would recommend NJ Transit to a friend or relative. This indicator is a good summary of overall satisfaction. In fact, customers who answered our most recent survey for the last quarter gave us the highest scores since the survey began six years ago."

Really?? That's not what commuters I'm hearing from are saying. It's time to fight back against New Jersey Transit"s mismanagement of your commute.

A Royal Pain

I went to a big wedding over the weekend.  It was in England.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.
