Buried Bus Stops in Hoboken

Buried Bus Stops in Hoboken – who cleans?

Hoboken was anal about “reminding” residents that they had a mere six hours to clean their sidewalks after the blizzard.

Not only that, now they’re even pushing you to clean TWO FEET into the street! (Fuck that shit).

But what about the NJ Transit Bus Stops?

They were plowed in with snow – forcing commuters into the street. Is NJ Transit getting fined? Probably not, because there’s a possibility of some schmoozing, envelopes and back-room stuff going on with the pending Rail Yards development on the radar.

Maybe those bus stops should be the city’s responsibility.

I looked this up last year to clarify the responsibilities as the City did nothing – not roads, not walks, not corners, not bus stops. The bus stops are the responsibility of the City administration.

We are the venders of the bus shelters throughout the City of Hoboken and we would like to respectfully respond to your article that came out the evening of Wednesday, January 27th to partially set the record straight. As you know, we had a major snow storm that ended on Sunday, January 24th with accumulations close to 2 feet. Although we are not contractually obligated to clear snow from the city bus stops, we choose to do snow removal at our expense in and around our shelters to benefit the citizens of Hoboken, the Municipality of Hoboken and our advertisers. We had a crew out in Hoboken clearing the bus stops on the morning of January 25th. We only remove snow at locations that have our structures on them. By the evening of January 25th, we had completed all of Willow, Clinton and on Washington St. from Newark St. all the way up to 8th. The only reason the remaining 4 were not done, is because the larger equipment contractors had not yet completed the upper portion of Washington St removing the large snow banks. The rest were completed by the morning of the 26th. We can tell you from experience that this particular storm had a huge impact and was larger than most and needed the time and patience to get through the cleanup. Thank you AR James Media!

Responsive cities call in crews. Mayor Roberts was very good in having the safety of the residents cared for and the snow removed. Patience does not fly as a negligence defense.
