Light rail riders sound off on planned route suspension in Jersey City

Posted Mar 7, 6:45 PM
By Terrence T. McDonald | The Jersey Journal

JERSEY CITY — Light rail riders sounded off to NJ Transit officials on Thursday on the agency’s plan to shut down the West Side branch of the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail for nine months starting in June.

NJ Transit held four hours of public hearings Thursday on the plan, which will shut down three stops on the branch to make way for repairs to the 54-inch sewer pipe that runs underneath the tracks.

They need to rip up the tracks, remove the overhead wires, and bring in equipment to dig down to the pipe. You can't run "reduced service" when the infrastructure itself is gone.


Some people just refuse to understand the constraints and limitations of certain situations.
well, they said the L train needed to be shut down too. doesn't it hurt to ask if there are alternatives
