My already lengthy commute has been extended by 20-30 minutes plus new stress to weave through the crowd at Hoboken to run for my train home. Mornings are a little easier, but I already spend just over 3 hrs a day traveling to and from work. An added 40-60 minutes feels soul-crushing. I have a young child in camp and so glad we decided to get a sitter for the summer so I know he will be picked up on time. The new schedule is costing us money and I’ll be grateful to be going back to Penn after the summer is over. I work on the UES and live in NJ. If only they could figure out a way to get NJT to Grand Central!
