New Jersey Transit Announces Contingency Plans if There is a Strike


The strike would start on Sunday March 13 and cause hardships for thousands of people who live or work in New Jersey.  I do have some sympathy for the workers as they have gone without a contract for 5 years.  I certainly hope that a fare settlement can be reached without a work stoppage.

Today New Jersey Transit announced contingency plans.  However this plan could only accomodate only 38% of the customer base.  I would have to take the PATH to Newark Penn Station and then the Light Rail to NJIT.  Since March 14-18 is spring break week with no classes, I will take that week off if there is a strike.  I will return on Monday March 21.

Maybe Governor Christie will come down from Trenton on a white horse and solve this mess if he is not busy campaigning for Trump.
