The PATH train saved me yesterday

A train  that derailed just outside New York Penn Station yesterday caused havoc on New Jersey Transit and Amtrak.  Since I received an e-mail alert, I knew in advance that there would be problems on the commute home.  Luckily the PATH runs from NYC to Newark.  New Jersey Transit costs more than PATH, but it is a much faster ride.  When I arrived at Newark Penn Station I immediately boarded the PATH especially since NJ Transit tickets were cross honored.  It certainly saved me from a lot of aggravation.  It is nice that there is often redundancy in mass transportation.
