NJ Transit, NFL no show at hearings on Super Bowl transit problems

Posted on March 11, 2014

TRENTON, N.J. — CBS New York and the AP reported neither NJ Transit nor the NFL sent a representative to hearings held by a legislative committee panel that is looking into the cause of excessive train delays after the Super Bowl.

The panel went ahead with the hearings, questioning officials from groups such as the Meadowlands Liberty Convention Visitors Bureau and the Country Club Services transportation services agency.

The chairman of the Transportation Committee, which held the hearings, released a statement saying that although the probe is incomplete without testimony from the NFL and NJ Transit, preliminary findings suggest the transit problems were caused by “an overreliance on expensive bus options that fans were unlikely to use. Restricting other transit options and failing to plan for workable backup alternatives also proved questionable.” For the full story, click here.
