2. My train pulled into the track where the Hoboken trains normally pull into (the platform that's already finished with the white marble). I don't know if this is the normal circumstance, or if it's just not complete yet, but there was only ONE, very small staircase to get up the next level from the platform. It took forever for the hundreds of people to get up (the staircase is only about 2 people wide). Does anybody know if this is a permanent situation? It was really terrible, and considering the amount of money that was spent on this remodel, completely unacceptable.


I agree it is unacceptable. It is barely 2 people wide. On Sunday, I was trying to go down and people were coming up, and it was terrible.

I thought they needed more stairs and escalators. And it was hot in the summer.


It's beyond me that that entire platform hasn't been deemed a fire hazard. It's so difficult to get out

Aren't the Liberty Towers locked for those without a key fob?

Dude, on a bus, even a someone on a wheelchair needs to be secured, so they are not tossed around. To that end, there are areas within the bus that are specially equipped to secure a wheelchair in place. Those areas have seats that get lifted to gain access to the special mechanism. If someone is sitting there, they are required to get up and give up their previously held seats. Some people just LOVE to play dumb and try not to move or get up.


thank you, it was an honest question from a non-bus rider

It's a sad commentary about today's society. I was on the bus last week and the lowlifes would not give up their seats to allow a wheelchair bound person on. The driver, another passenger and me finally literally bullied people out of their seats.


wouldn't someone in a wheelchair already have a seat?

I say ticket the jaywalkers crossing against signals. There is no excuse for it. It causes traffic confusion, endangers motorists and pedestrians and teaches our children (and theirs - always kills me to see stroller moms crossing Columbus on "Don't Walk"!) to ignore the signals!

I am both a pedestrian and a driver and it is a rare exception when I see a pedestrian obey the signals.

More driver than pedestrian, I would hazard. I am a pedestrian 100% of the time, and it is a rare exception when I see a driver obey the traffic laws.


Agreed completely. I'm in and out of the office on Hudson at around 3/4ish, it starts to get nuts. None of those red lights are acknowledged by the drivers headed west and turning north. I gave up wishing for enforcement when last week I saw two cruisers go right through a solid red light at Grand and Hudson at two separate times. Pedestrians are not the issue, at least not in Paulus Hook.

Re: Car/Pedestrian accident on Washington and Morris

I continue to be baffled as to why the police refuse to do anything about the drivers in dtjc. This specific intersection, as well as up and down Washington up to grand, is fucking thunderdome.

There's a stop sign at that intersection! Do you think a woman with a 3 year old just darted out into traffic? Great place for a u-turn without looking.

I've watched plenty of cars, including cop cars, go right through the stop signs on Washington. How many 3 year olds is it going to take for the PD to do their job?

I can't fathom how this can keep happening without a proper response from those sworn to protect you. The Jersey City drivers are the most aggressive, dangerous and flippant I've come across. I've lived (and survived as a pedestrian!) in some of the biggest cities in the US and have never encountered such insane, unchecked driving. Jersey City is the worst, most hostile driving I've ever encountered. There's no defense for it and certainly no excuse for the lack of enforcement.

How many people have to die or be injured before the police do their jobs? How many hit and runs before JC drivers observe the rules so easily followed by the rest of the world?

This is disgusting.

Pffft...if it's so much better, why do so many JC residents say they "practically live in NYC?"

I have never lived in a place where peds in crosswalks are so widely ignored by drivers. its high time to begin to enforce the law that requires drivers to stop for peds entering a crosswalk.

As for rumble strips we have several on Richard St. Useless! Maybe made a few dollars for the paint company but no effect on speeders. We need real speed humps like many other towns have. Humps work really well especially for lowered cars, and have no effect on ambulances or fire trucks, the usual reason given for not putting them in.

Humps have a longer on and off ramp, versus speed bumps, and allow for an easy crossing at 20-25 mph.

But giving out tickets is going to be the quickest way to get the word out, JC enforces the law. Great thing here is that no laws are needed, they are already on the books. Just start enforcing them!


gonna need another grant for that

To everyone calling for increased enforcement, I don't know what you're talking about. In April of this year, the state gave the JCPD a grant of $27,900 for a pedestrian and traffic safety initiative (aka overtime gift).

"Police officers will ensure that drivers adhere to stop and yield signs, observe traffic signals, and stop for pedestrians in crosswalks," Police Chief Thomas Comey said in a statement.

So yeah, problem's been solved for months.
