If commuting on PATH is hairy now, imagine if the threatened Amtrak strike happens at the end of this month. Train commuters would be forced to commute to Hoboken and take the PATH.
From the New York Post…
Amtrak workers vow to walk off the job Jan. 31 at 12:01 a.m. if there’s no agreement between the government-subsidized railroad and its unions.
If the strike occurs, Long Island Rail Road and NJ Transit service to the city would be all but shut down, since Amtrak owns the Penn Station tracks.
“It is going to be worse than a nightmare – it will be a complete horror show. There will be no relief,” LIRR Commuters Council chairman Gerry Bringmann said.
