NJTransit is expected to announce a 25% rate hike. So for me, a one way trip from Somerville to NYC will go up from $11.25 to $14.50.

So does that mean faster service? Nope, just a means to close a $300 million hole.

NJTransit is not a passenger rail company. It’s a state jobs program for train hobbyists.

Commuting by car to the city is not an option for me. Fortunately, my town has a Transbridge Bus Station.

Thanks to the rate hike, now it’s cheaper than the train.

Until NJTransit become a real passenger rail service, I will not be taking it anymore. Neither should you.
