EDISON - New Jersey's transportation commissioner has ordered a study to see what improvements need to be made to the Northeast Corridor.

Commissioner James Simpson wants to investigate what changes need to be made to bring the corridor's service up to par with NJ Transit's other lines.

Simpson said he got a taste of what New Jersey commuters experience when he took the train to yesterday's NJ Transit board meeting and left 30 to 40 minutes earlier to ensure he'd make the meeting on time.

NJ Transit leases part of the Northeast Corridor line, which belongs to Amtrak. Simpson says he wants to meet with federal and Amtrak officials soon to find a way to implement the suggested upgrades.
