New Jersey Governor Murphy Signs Bill to Overhaul NJ Transit - Too Late for Me

It is almost one year to the day since I last rode on New Jersey Transit.  I am enjoying the $152/month that I don't have to pay them to ride from NYC to Newark.  Over the past year, I have read about numerous delays that have occurred on that railroad for various reason and am relieved that I don't have to commute there again.

According to this article , NJ Transit will undergo major structural changes for the first time in a generation under a bipartisan bill that Gov. Phil Murphy signed Thursday to overhaul operations at the long-troubled public transit agency.  Obviously, there won't be miracles overnight, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.  Over my 25 years of commuting, I felt that the agency was not responsive to the concerns of its customers.  I don't think the former Governor cared about NJ Transit and let the agency slip into mediocrity.
