NJ Transit grabs Five gates from Greyhound/PP North Wing!

Aug. 31, 2016

Starting Sat. Sept. 3, 2016, NJ Transit has maneuvered the right to use 5 gates in the North Wing Lower Level between the hours of 3:30 PM to 7:30 PM.  The gates that NJ Transit has received – through some sort of agreement between PABT, NJT and Greyhound – enables them to use Gates: 74; 75; 76; 77 and 78, during those hours (in addition to the overnight usage of North Wing gates).

According to press releases, this is some sort of a “pilot program” that “helps reduce traffic” in the NJ Transit gate areas! No mention of the gridlock traffic in the North Wing terminal! Let’s see how this plays out….

FMCSA & NHTSA propose mandatory Speed Limiter Governors on all trucks and busses nationwide

Aug. 28, 2016

Following committee discussion in 2014 and 2015, the FMCSA is proposing mandatory governors on all heavy vehicles on the nation’s highways to be installed with 60MPH, 65MPH, or 68 MPH speed limiters.   The proposal is now in the public 60-day comment period, where a proposed Congressional rulemaking is open for discussion by all parties. Truck Operator groups as well as Truck fleet organizations are mostly opposed to the rule, saying it would make the roads more dangerous (with the different speeds of side-by-side vehicles in some areas)…”highways are safest when all vehicles travel at the same relative speed” says Todd Spencer, executive vice president of an Independent Truck Owner’s Association.

Click:  Busses may soon be governed at 68 MPH nationwide.
