GET THE KAYAKS READY: Impending NJ Transit Strike Spells Disaster for Hoboken Commuters
With a system-wide NJ Transit Strike looming for March 13, the situation here in Hoboken looks pretty grim.
“This will not be a normal commute for anyone,” said Dennis Martin, NJ Transit’s interim executive director, as he outlined specific plans should the strike take effect.
Of interest to Hoboken is the fact that the #126 Bus WILL NOT RUN TO NYC.
This decision has been made in an effort to alleviate what will undoubtedly be significant traffic through the Lincoln Tunnel.
According to NJ Transit:
“The 126 bus route in Hoboken will operate on a reverse routing on weekday mornings, beginning at Willow Avenue and 19th Street and operating south to Hoboken Terminal for cross honoring with PATH and ferry service. In the evening, the 126 bus route will operate from Hoboken Terminal back to Willow Avenue and 19th Street. Weekend service will operate on its regular route to/from New York.”
Meanwhile, the Hoboken Cove Boathouse typically doesn’t open it’s kayak season until June…
