Today's commute has been terrible, as the various mass transit systems dig their way out from under the snow. A reader sent us pictures of the seen at the PATH's Grove Street station (above) and here's a sampling of what some other riders have been saying:


  • "Just witnessed a knock down brawl out on #njtransit. People love snow."—carolinejoan

  • "Umm so if I lose my job @njtransit will hear it from me..I'm 3 minutes outside of NY and this train hasn't moved for 45 mins!"—lolaxbee

  • "all metronorth trains are packed & standing room only. crammed into one luckily but then we got stuck. will be late to work. oh happy day."—Nishi

  • "#MetroNorth. Full train stopped at NorotonHeights #Darien. 10-20 people of the 200+ on platform crammed themselves on. #nothappy"—KaraGloverBillhardt

  • "LIRR is still not totally running"—sarcasmpucktail

LIRR service is in "triage" mode—Newsday reports, "The LIRR is prioritizing service on its four busiest routes, Babylon, Huntington, Ronkonkoma and Port Washington, and hoping to phase in some service on other lines throughout the day, said LIRR spokesman Joe Calderone. Service remains suspended on the railroad's seven other lines." One commuter tells Newsday that he wasted two hours thinking there would be holiday service (as previously announced), "Service delays are justifiable after a massive snowstorm. Deception is not justifiable, especially in a quasi-governmental agency. Why misinform the public and have people waiting for hours at the station?"
