Don’t end up in NJ Transit’s 'rude zone'

EDISON - NJ Transit has launched customer courtesy campaign aimed at reminding passengers to mind their manners when riding trains, buses and light rail vehicles.

Customers will see postcards on seats containing a cartoon which reminds passengers by way of “Greetings from the Rude Zone.”

Some of the behaviors that could get you in the “Rude Zone” including, using the phone loudly, using foul language and grooming on the train.

“As we continue to listen to our customers, one thing we keep hearing them point out is common courtesy among fellow passengers,” said NJ Transit Executive Director Veronique “Ronnie” Hakim said. “This campaign is a fun and subtle reminder that we’re all in this together and that manners matter when riding our system.”

The campaign’s social media component will utilize such platforms as Facebook and Twitter to emphasize each week’s message.  Customers will be able to join the conversation using the hashtag #RudeZone.
