NJ Transit Skips Hearing on Super Bowl Rail Issues

For the second time in less than a month, New Jersey’s top transit officials have skipped a legislative hearing on rail issues surrounding last month’s Super Bowl.

The Assembly transportation committee scheduled a hearing two weeks ago but had to cancel when outgoing NJ Transit head James Weinstein and others declined to attend. The hearing was to probe what caused lengthy delays moving fans from MetLife Stadium after the game.

Since then, Weinstein has been replaced by former Turnpike Authority chief Veronique Hakim. Hakim didn’t attend Monday’s hearing in Trenton.

The NFL also declined to send a representative to both hearings.

Twice as many Super Bowl ticketholders as expected wound up taking trains, leading to hours-long delays after the game.
