Article: Report on NJ Transit’s gridlock at Super Bowl is overdue – News – NorthJersey.com.

What a fiasco.  As my acquaintance, the Lackawanna Coalition‘s David Peter Alan says, this whole deal was to benefit the NFL, not the taxpayers of New Jersey, yet New Jersey Transit voted to pay over One Meelion Dollars to a consultancy for whom NJT’s director once worked.

And they blew the estimates big time as indicated by the hours-long wait fans suffered through post-game.

My question, of course, is where was the state’s governor in all this?
