Schumer: Boost communication after Penn Station stampede

Schumer: Boost communication after Penn Station stampede

NJ Transit said, "NEC, NJCL, RVL and MidTown Direct trains are subject to up to 40-minute delays, and expected to escalate".

The New York Times reported earlier Tuesday that Amtrak, which operates Penn Station, was considering "extended track closing" to make repairs. The work is different from the fix work already in process, a spokesman said.

Nearly two weeks ago, a disabled NJ transit train caused two-hour delays throughout the evening commute.

Amtrak said Tuesday's disturbance was due to a problem with an overhead power line in an East River tunnel.

"There's always some kind of issue", said Samantha Butisingh, 28, of Linden.

Amtrak and the LIRR said the repairs should be done before Wednesday morning's rush hour.

Jeremy Corbyn overcame odds of 200-1 against him by winning Labour's bitter leadership battle past year , May noted. Over half those polled in Glasgow have said they would vote Nationalist, according to senior sources.

Amtrak said it would have "more on the plans" to fix Penn Station within the next few days and vowed to work alongside NJ Transit and LIRR in order to minimize the repairs' impact on commuters.

Sen. Charles Schumer says the stampede that injured 16 people at New York's Penn Station just over a week ago shows a need for better coordination between law enforcement agencies at transportation hubs.

The latest problems have prompted some critics to press the MTA to wrest control of Penn Station from Amtrak.

Back at Penn Station Tuesday evening, Grace Marin, 47, who was trying to get home to Long Beach, admitted that her commute was ruined.

"They're stealing our money", DiBenedetto continued. "We can't go one week without delays and problems", Epstein said. That's more than my vehicle payment. "The MTA and Long Island Rail Road will thoroughly review the plan once it is presented".

"Any action that leads Amtrak to pay more attention to the LIRR and its commuters is a positive step forward", Kaminsky said.
