Reader Mail: Dumpy Old Buses
Today, Hoboken411 reader Matt wonders why Hoboken has the bottom-of-the-line NJ Transit Buses. Is it because it’s such a short trip? Or that NJT doesn’t love us?
Old School Buses
“Did you ever notice that Hoboken probably has the oldest New Jersey Transit Bus fleet in the State? While there are some of the newer models that run Washington St., most of the #126 Line buses are the late 1980’s Flixible buses. Seems like the rest of Jersey gets the newer Greener Natural Gas buses. I wonder how safe and environmentally friendly these dumpy old buses are? All I know is that it is rare that you get on one of these buses on the Clinton or Willow line and the A/C works or there are not 100’s of bone shaking rattles. I think you can probably get bed bugs or Ebola from the seat cushions too.”
How many bus riders feel the same way?
