Less than two weeks after the fatal Hoboken train crash the Hoboken terminal has resumed full service. Although authorities have yet to conclusively state what caused the crash New Jersey Transit has implemented new safety measures that hopefully will prevent future crashes.
When trains enter the Hoboken terminal their approach will be decreased from 10mph to 5 mph. In additional to changes in speed, a conductor will now have to stand watch in the driving cab as the engineer pulls into the station.
The New Jersey transit has been under fire since the fatal crash as many are outraged by it’s history of safety issues and violations.
