If you use New Jersey Transit (NJT) train service or know a local commuter, by now you are more than familiar with the horror stories about the trains: delays, cancellations, and overcrowding.

I don't whether to laugh or cry with the latest news I read on NJ.com about NJT. It seems like another day another story about local train services, but now this news justifies what was already known: New Jersey Transit is one of the worst railroad services. It's sad, but true.

Believe it or not, NJ Transit did not come in first place though. According to the article, Boston's Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority beat NJT for the top spot  for having the most commuter trains breakdown last year, based on Federal Transit Administration data.

I would like to share some good news about NJT here with this: NJ Transit is offering a 10 percent discount on all tickets in November, December and January.

The reason they're offering this discount is because they cut 18 trains from their schedule while they continue to work on positive train control (PTC). The federal government ordered that the work needs to be done by the end of this year. NJT is hoping to restore regular service in mid-January. Fingers crossed on that.
