July 17 – Chronology of events

July 17th, 2013  |  Published in examples, press

Here is the chronology of issues tonight…as reported by the commuters.
These alerts are grouped by carrier (although we combined the buses which use Port Authority)…and then sorted by time (with the oldest listed first).
It is interesting to note that NJ Transit appears to have not shared any system-wide information throughout the entire incident (NEC riders did get news from NJT…but others did not).
