NJ commuters faced with decisions as 'Summer of Hell' begins

Passengers in New York's Penn Station ride the escalators Monday

Amtrak also altered its schedule, canceling some trains between NY and Washington, cutting short the runs of other trains that normally start or end their runs at Penn Station and having several trains a day use Grand Central instead of Penn Station.

Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Cory Booker called on the Trump administration to honor that commitment at a news conference near the spot on Manhattan's west side Monday where preliminary work has already begun. The 35-year-old says everybody's just bumping into each other, pushing each other to get to their destination.

"Even though the No. 7 is more convenient, the squeeze is going to be not good", Ralph said.

Attention commuters! Today marks the beginning of an eight-week period of construction at New York City's transportation hub, Penn Station.

The snarled evening commute at Penn Station in April following a derailment.

A massive two-month fix project, dubbed the "Summer of Hell", launches today at the busiest train station in the United States, and Hudson Valley rail commuters used to regular delays and service disruptions are bracing for the worst.

NJ Transit also is checking commuter reports on Twitter and making minor adjustments based on comments and suggestions, Ingoglia said.

Top pick DJ Wilson scores 11 as Milwaukee drops Summer League opener
Gary Payton II was a lone bright spot for Milwaukee, as he tallied 10 points, four rebounds, three assists and five steals. Now, that the Utah portion of the Summer League has passed we can begin to make assessments about the young guns.

Booker said it's time for Trump to "put up or shut up".

Service has been stepped up by trains, buses and ferries in anticipation of the busier commute.

The work began as Monday morning's rush got off to a slow start for several hundred thousand commuters on the Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit.

Despite a little crowding on some trains, most NJ TRANSIT riders arriving at Penn Station had no complaints about the morning commute.

MTA Interim Executive Director Veronique Hakim said the MTA is understanding of people's' concerns. The most recent incident occurred late Thursday, when 180 people had to be rescued from an NJ Transit train that derailed as it emerged on the NY side of a tunnel under the Hudson River.

In a survey aimed at illustrating the financial hardship caused by the city's subway system, almost 75 percent of respondents blamed trains for their late arrival at work during the last three months, while 13 percent said they'd been docked wages.

Waiting with a handful of other commuters on a pre-dawn Long Island Rail Road platform in Farmingdale, Susan Young, 43, said: "It's going to have some slowdown". New Jersey Transit is diverting some rush hour trains to Hoboken, where passengers can switch to PATH trains or ferries.
