Its an Interesting idea to think about. I know the Northeast Corridor will eventually have 24/7 service by the late 2020s. But how would you feel about 24/7 service on the Morristown line between Dover and NY Penn and on the North Jersey Coast line between Long Branch and NY Penn. Once the MOM network and Lackawanna / Pompton networks are built these will become very busy lines and with busy lines come more service.......service every 5-10mins i wouldn't be far off to say that would happen. I also wouldn't be far off to say that each line would be used would be used by 50,000 ppl. The reason I included the Morristown & North Jersey Coast lines was because they are trunk lines and all serve densely populated cities and towns.

Many of these lines should be 24/7, or something close to that. I would love for the northeast corridor lines to be 24/7 I then would not have to be on that 1:30 am train and I could party to as late as I want and know that I have a train to take me home. Not just for partying but how awesome would it be to be out and not have to worry about missing the last train! They could even charge more money for overnight trains like 15 instead of 7, wed still pay it.

Easy to say yes, doesn't cost any $ to vote. I find the NJ Coast Line kind of a long ride due to the number of stops,,, you go a bit then stop for the next station. Maybe they could put in a voting system to skip stops where no one is waiting or getting off?

The more service, the better, in my book. Better mass transportation helps clear our roads and our air. It makes home values rise as it makes the remote areas more reachable by the working populace.
