EAST ORANGE — Riders faced another frustrating commute Friday morning as NJ Transit once again saw delays and cancellations as it conducted much needed track work. About half a dozen trains canceled during the morning rush along with delays. The transit company advised customers of service changes as it installs Positive Train Control throughout its system. It is well behind on work to install Positive Train Control systems and has been scrambling to meet the end of year deadline. Commuters though, are tired of what they say is an unreliable service. In addition to their work to install the federally mandated updates, the railroad has also been dealing with unexcused engineer absences.

On Thursday, Gov. Phil Murphy joined the agency's board of directors to address the issues. He attributed the problems to the work done by the Christie administration.
