NJ Transit Chief to Meet Commuters at Hoboken
New Jersey Transit’s Hoboken Terminal is back in business weeks after sustaining damage during Superstorm Sandy.
NJ Transit executive director James Weinstein will be on hand in the main waiting room to meet commuters at 4 p.m. Monday.
The waiting room is reopening for the first time since mid-December when mold was discovered in the cleanup after Sandy.
NJ Transit has drawn criticism for its performance before and after the storm. In particular, critics have focused on the decision to leave train cars and locomotives in maintenance yards that suffered heavy flooding.
Trains into Hoboken are still operating on backup electrical power.
The agency says Sandy will end up costing it approximately $400 million.
