Summit Commuters: Let Us Hear from You


NJ Transit trains have been getting worse and worse. Not knowing when a train will depart or arrive creates scheduling anxiety at work and at home. Now, without prior warning or request for public input, NJ Transit has announced that it is planning on having all Midtown Direct Morris & Essex trains diverted to Hoboken during July and August. We are the only line being targeted for diversion.

We have grave doubts as to whether this schedule will be met, and fear that we may be looking at a much longer project. We are also concerned that NJ Transit will not keep our community informed as the work progresses. We don’t understand why, as tracks are repaired, some direct service cannot be provided into and out of Penn Station. We don’t know what provisions have been made for extra PATH trains or ferries.  

Mayor Nora Radest has pushed for a meeting with NJ Transit, which is currently scheduled for June 7th. She also testified yesterday at a joint committee of the Legislature. Before her June 7th meeting, NJ Transit should know that we support our Mayor’s efforts to get answers. You can add your voice at
