A message to NJ Transit Northeast Corridor riders

Friday’s events were exceptional in several ways…even in the context of how challenging that train line has been lately.
I do think that  – ultimately – this group did a suitable job of self-regulating in light of a very unique set of circumstances.

There were probably a few lessons learned…and that’s understandable given the recent growth of this list.
I’d continue to encourage people to familiarize themselves with the so-called “rules of the road” for Clever Commute riders (https://clevercommute.com/blog/page-rules-of-the-road/)

“CC” is still young in many respects…and we’re simply not resourced to do some of the things I think we’d all like to see (e.g., create “rider advocacy” initiatives focused on the transit providers and the local government). As our functional and business models mature, I’m looking forward to making those things happen.

But for now, I’m going to strongly encourage us to “do one thing…and do it well”
Let’s continue to leverage the “wisdom of the crowd” in order to get us in/out of NYC quickly, safely, and with as little stress as possible.

I continue to encourage you limit your use of the list to strictly train-related alerts. With that said, I do want you to know that my in-box is open to your comments.

Good luck with Monday’s commute.
