The commute was already a bear for many Decamp bus riders this morning, but the “Monday after” Daylight Savings Time ends can be tricky, especially when you add that new train schedules were announced yesterday on NJ Transit. Conductor Josh of Clever Commute explains why:
We’ve been following the commute for a while…and we’ve see days like this before:
1. New train schedules for many (NJ Transit and LIRR)
2. Daylight savings time ends
3. Autumn leaves / slippery rails
Indeed, one year ago, “the Monday after DST”…it was a tough commute all around the area (yes…including buses)
If you take the 5:45 p.m. to Montclair — it now leaves at 5:44. If you take the 6:09 p.m. and change at Newark for Montclair it’s now the 6:08. Check your times before you head to Penn tonight.
