NJ needs to figure out a solution to its public transit problem
The latest NJ Transit delays are absolutely outrageous. Really shows how vulnerable we are as commuters.
What if a tunnel is damaged in a similar accident? What about the steady aging of the trains and tracks?

And a train to nowhere in Jersey City?
There's an election coming up in November. Transportation should be a top issue.
We took calls from listeners who said that instead of revamping the transit problem, maybe we should be looking at tax breaks to bring businesses over to this side of the river. Here's a great example in this Tweet:
