Earlier this year, NJ Transit riders had a fare hike. Of course, since then, there have been numerous problems plaguing the system, from power issues that leave passengers stranded in the tunnel near Penn Station to derailments. Today, a wire fell near Metuchen around 7:40 a.m., causing 30-60 minute delays.

According to WABC 7, "Approximately 700 passengers were evacuated from one commuter train. New Jersey Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. says the 11-car train came to a stop in Metuchen on its way to New York City around 7:40 a.m... The downed wire is causing delays of up to 60 minutes on the busy Northeast Corridor line between Trenton and Princeton Junction."

Riders have been taking to Twitter: "Funny how #njtransit changes express trains into local trains at their whim. Wait, it's not funny. Did I mention I pay $414/month to ride?" (chris_ackermann) and "Nothing like rolling into the office at the crack of 10 am. Thanks #NJTransit. #IPayForThis?" (NHLAdamK). Also, "My landlord came back from China & Korea. I asked him about how the trains compare to NJTransit. He laughed. More than casually" (nsjersey).
