Yesterday NJ Transit officials announced a contingency plan in case of a rail strike. The plan will accommodate about 40k commuters into NY, leaving over 60K without many other options. Click here to see the NJ Transit plan.
Today, Nj.com announced that in an effort to avert the strike, NJ Transit is proposing a new offer. The two sides will be meeting today. We will keep you posted and post update info on our social media accounts as soon as we know more.
In the meantime here are some additional resources and info to prepare for a possible strike:
