New Jersey Transit has just posted new schedules for all rail lines to their web site, as service takes another step toward returning to pre-Sandy levels. The new weekday schedules take effect this Monday. There are improvements on the Morris & Essex, Montclair-Boonton, and Gladstone lines, although there are still some serious gaps in service, and the level of weekday service to Gladstone is still far below pre-Sandy levels.
While we compliment NJT on increasing the number of trains, we remain concerned that NJT has refused to discuss any potential schedule changes with us, as the representative of our riders and our communities. We are also concerned that the new schedules were posted on the business day before they are slated to take effect.
