Hot NJ Transit buses – STILL!

4/3/2009 Update:

Hoboken411 reader Pete wanted to point out that NJ Transit buses in Hoboken are still crap:

Will we be stuck with mobile saunas all summer?

“You posted this almost a year ago – and we are now experiencing the same discomfort. I hope NJT fixes this before the problem really gets out of hand with the warmer weather! I live with one roommate and my girlfriend who often comes into Hoboken. Today they all experienced the sauna that our beloved 126 Bus has to offer (we were all on different buses with the same complaint BTW). It might go a long way if we can all inform NJ Transit of this issue before the weather really gets warm. As always keep up the good work!”

See last years same complaint after the jump…

5/30/2008:

Recently, one Hoboken411 reader griped about the condition of the “old” NJ Transit buses that are serving the city.

Now with the weather getting warmer, others have complaints with these buses turning into saunas. Here’s what 411 reader Pete has to say, and what you can do about it:

What to do about steamy buses

“I am writing this in conjunction to a recent article you posted about the old 126 buses Hoboken residents have the pleasure of riding everyday to and from work. Now that the weather is getting nicer the buses are turning into ovens. There is nothing worse that finishing work then getting packed into a hot steamy bus with no A/C. I found a link below that might help escalate this issue

Maybe you can share this on your site so anyone who has the same experience will be able to voice their concern.”

[quote comment=”147139″]The longer coach buses are nice, but make it difficult when there is standing room only and the guy that wants to get off in Weehawken, is always and without fail, in the last row.[/quote]

Seriously, they should hang banners over the seat sections: PATH terminal to 4th street in the back, 6th-12th in the middle, Weehawken-14th in the front. When the seats are taken, make sure the Weehawken people get on first to stand.

I miss the Red Apple too! Every morning was like Death Race 2000. They used to gun those junkers to try to get to the passengers before NJT.

For you capitalists out there, years ago competition forced NJT had to ROLL BACK a fare increase. When has a government agency ever done that? But when NJT tried to charge $2+ and the Apple was still $1, we all jumped ship unless it was over 90 degrees.

If only is merely a wish. Costly, impractical, and potentially dangerous – wind, taller and taller ships, and of course ice along the archway

Yup, it would be great to be able to walk or bicycle to work.

But, a 175 foot bridge across the Long Slip Canal costs $6.4 million… so you’ve got to figure a Hudson bridge is going to cost $200 million. Not generating revenue, not a chance.
