National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP) President & CEO Jim Mathews issued a statement responding to the recent incidents that have affected intercity and commuter rail operations in the New York/New Jersey region of the Northeast Corridor:
“Our Association is extremely dismayed at the series of incidents that have been troubling train operations along the Northeast Corridor.”
“Not simply because these problems, resulting from aging tunnel and electrical infrastructure, have been disrupting the daily lives of hundreds of thousands commuters and travelers. No, we are just as dismayed by the collective memory loss that seems to be sweeping the U.S. every few months. When it comes to our infrastructure problems, America has started displaying the retentive powers of your average goldfish.”
