NJ Transit commuters will face a number of changes during the RNC
Some New Jersey residents who commute into New York City will face a longer ride to work when the Republican National Convention gets underway Monday. For those commuters who take NJ Transit, all mid-town direct trains into Penn Station will be suspended. Those on board the Morris and Boonton lines, bound for New York City, will have to make an extra stop. Passengers will be rerouted through Hoboken where they can take a bus, ferry or PATH train. Some commuters hoping to avoid the convention chaos have asked to work from home. Others, anxious about the transfer, will stay with loved ones in New York City. Steve Coleman, of the Port Authority, says there'll be extra PATH trains on the tracks. And there'll be signs to help guide those heading to the bus or ferry.
