NJ Transit out in force to be sure buses make correct turn in Hoboken

2/22/2012 Update:

As most of you have likely noticed – NJ Transit has at least half a dozen employees, several vehicles and elaborate message board signs to make sure buses coming down Washington Street make the proper turns due to the detours in place after the 300 Washington Street Fire.

Wouldn’t a simple memo to drivers on this route have sufficed?

Overkill?
