NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Commuters in New York and New Jersey may have found something more frightening than a Halloween ghoul – relying on NJ Transit.
Delayed … Delayed … Delayed … leaving Penn Station showed little hope for customers using NJ Transit on Tuesday night.
This time because of a problem with Amtrak's gantry bridge crossing the Hackensack River.

"You think this is acceptable to treat people in this way?" A woman was shouted at transit workers in New Jersey.
"They are unbelievably frustrated and so are I, but incidents like this drive people crazy and they drive me crazy … They sat there for 90 minutes, and there's no excuse for that," Governor Phil Murphy told Meg Baker from CBS2

Commuters now say they have no choice but to continue or at least wait,
"It's frustrating, what are you going to do, I work in Midtown, I work on Wall Street, so I have to come in. They got us on … you know," Tuzzo said 9659019]
