Reader Mail: Commuting Rant
Here we have an obviously irritated resident expressing her concerns about the absolutely inconvenient mess that our modes of transportation dish out week after week.
What are your suggestions to help her out?
WHAT IS GOING ON WITH HOBOKEN MODES OF TRANSPORTATION!!! IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!! i have not had a comfortable and/or reliable day of travel into and out of the city in at least 3 months…i am a monthly bus pass person and the buses have been a disaster lately– the real back up is on that little bridge from Hoboken that goes towards the Lincoln tunnel, because the HOV lane doesn’t start until way after you get over it….so the buses are stuck in the middle of all of the other traffic and it really starts to make you think “I should’ve taken the path” but when the path breaks down twice in one week and you are sent back and forth to jersey city and a 14 minute ride becomes an hour—is it just me or am i like pig pen from the peanuts comics…just walking around with a cloud of dust following me wherever i go???
Why cant we change one of the Hoboken-bound lanes on that little overpass into an HOV lane for rush hour??? why not?? there are 4 lanes on that overpass, 2 going each way…and the jersey turnpike does this during rush hour every day!!! i moved to Hoboken so that my commute would not be over an hour every day! –my commute was an hour every day from CENTRAL JERSEY! anyway i feel like a lot of people feel like this and everyone thinks we just have to deal with it…can’t we CHANGE it?!?! i am sitting on a non-moving bus on that little bridge watching the ONE guy in the world who commutes TO Hoboken FROM the city to work just fly by in that completely empty space.
