New Jersey Transit Should Announce Delays in a Timely Manner


Yesterday I arrived at the Newark Light Rail stop at Penn Station at 7:55.  There were already many people on the platform which seemed unusual for the summer.  I waited and waited and no trains came.  I decided to walk to NJIT which is about a mile away.  It took about 20 minutes, but it was uphill.  At least it gave me my daily exercise.  At 8:32 AM after I arrived at work I received an e-mail stating that due to a stalled train there was delay on the light rail.

Since New Jersey Transit uses a 19th century method of fare collection why can’t someone come down to the platform and verbally announce a delay?  Where are the fare inspectors when you need them?
