Thank you so much for the reply!!!

But do you think a light rail can connect from the cities like New Brunswick and Perth Amboy to places like Woodbridge Center and Menlo Park Mall or even certain places in Rt. 1 or Rt. 9 where there's a lot of traffic?


Thank you!!

Thank you!!
LRT will most likely run East - West , but there are a few Bus Rapid Transit lines along Route 1 , 27 & 9 that would service the other areas not getting Rail. Some of these are up and running in the form of Express Buses , Route 1 might be a real BRT and so would 27. All the Bus Rapid Transit in NJ would be built before the full build Rail system would ,constructed.....

Thank you again. Just one more question. About how minutes would I have to have to wait on a bus rapid transit for each bus.

Every 5-10mins probably for peak and 15-20mins off peak , this improvement to Routes 1 , 27 , & 9 comes with Sidewalks. Bus Rapid Transit / Express Bus lanes are also in the works for I-287 , I-280 , NJ 4 , NJ 208 , NJ 17 & NJ 3.

What's up with the NJTransit trains today? Specifically Northeast Corridor & North Jersey Coast Lines? Up to an hour delays and cancelled trains. I hate when this happens because they often make all the express trains stop at ALL the stops making my commute over an hour longer.

The 1940 Switches keep failing and unless the Govt decides to overhaul them you'll get huge delays like this every month.

I'd rather they just doubled the prices of all tickets and passes and fed the money to Amtrak to fix it. Waiting for the government to do what we can do ourselves doesn't always make sense.
