Officials announced today that New Jersey Transit will resume regular service on July 6.
According to New Jersey Transit, ridership has been at record lows even on reduced schedules.
For riders like Patricia Feldman, that means longer commute times and later arrivals.
“In the morning, the earliest express train gets me to my desk at 9:30,” says Feldman. “It’s just very different. I have no control getting where I need to go.”
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy says the full-service resume will hopefully provide relief and ensure there are enough trains to allow for social distancing.
“Without a doubt, more trains running mean we’re closer to taking our next steps along the road to recovery,” says Murphy.
A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says they are operating more than half their trains to only 13 percent of their ridership. They will continue to evaluate service for phase three of the city’s reopening, as well.
