Hudson Valley commuters face "Summer of Hell"

Hudson Valley commuters face

A massive two-month fix project will launch Monday at the country's busiest train station.

New York City-bound commuters packed New Jersey Transit's early Midtown Direct trains as Amtrak began replacing aging equipment that routes trains entering Pennsylvania Station, the busiest terminal in North America. More buses will be added from Hoboken as well.

"We like to think it's quiet because a lot of people did their homework", New Jersey Transit spokesman Charles Ingoglia said while standing outside the Hoboken train and ferry stations. Roughly 600,000 people pass through each day on trains and New York City subways. That won't happen until a new tunnel is built under the Hudson River, a project that faces lingering questions over how much funding President Donald Trump's administration will provide.

Monday's morning rush saw no crowds early on outside the Hoboken train and ferry stations, where New Jersey Transit is diverting some rush hour trains so passengers can switch to PATH trains or ferries. An NJ Transit train derailed at Penn Station on Thursday night, prompting a ripple of cancelations-the third Penn Station derailment since March.

As per the Fire Department of NY which is better known as FDNY, who made a statement on the incident occurred in the Manhattan area on a late evening, where a auto from a New Jersey train was derailed which was carrying about 100 people on board.

The work began as Monday morning's rush got off to a slow start for several hundred thousand commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun , Feige talked about the how Spider-Man's arc will be broken up across the movies. This incarnation was introduced to audiences in Captain America: Civil War aka the best Marvel movie ever made.

With the uncertainty of how painful their commutes may be, some say they may avoid NJ TRANSIT all together.

In response to the issues, PATH is adding enough trains so that one will arrive every five minutes.

The work is scheduled to last through the end of August. And, on Sunday, he wrote a letter to Long Island Rail Road commuters reminding them it's not the MTA's fault.

Still, the real test for the "new normal" won't come until the weather, equipment problems or police activity somewhere along the train line interrupts service.

Two minor derailments and other problems at New York's Penn Station this spring prompted Amtrak to accelerate repairs it had initially planned to perform over a few years.
