Which is great. I hope they start gearing towards new tunnel construction.

I drive into the city every other day for work related business, and the traffic, the delays, they are starting to get me. Its the same shit every single day, and in the places that need lane expansions or the rail lines that need higher service and at a quicker frequency, seem to just lag all the time.

Politically, its good that we have someone in office who can at least get the momentum going.

They can first start by rushing the cashless tolls on the tunnels and GWB. Why the GWB isn't cashless yet is absurd. The tolls cause so much traffic and I'd say more money is lost due to impeding traffic than is gained via the tolls. All that lost time, in which, time is money in the business or transportation (trucking) world.

For NJ Transit, they need more express trains. That can help. Some spread out during the day, not just 6:30-7:30am and 5:12pm to 5:37pm routine.

Some during off peak would be nice.

The only thing with the increases service in and investment is that it will unfortunately translate the cost to the rider, which, in NJ transit's case, is already pricey enough. Prices increase, but signal delays don't stop or issues.

The PATH overnight service must have a 20 minutes frequency like the NYC subway !!
About of the late night service and the overnight connection between subway (Herald Square) and Path (33rd st), what does mean that the passageway from PATH to NYC Subway N, Q, and R trains closed daily from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m. (use NYC Subway entrance at 34 St & 6 Av) ?
Does mean it that the connection between Path and B-D-F and M is instead possible even after the 11 p.m. ( and 24 hours for the D and F lines ) ? But aren't freely link the BMT and IND lines at Herald Square Station ? Why this difference ?

Has Murphy made any statements on what he plans to do with PATH. This could be huge if there's support.
