Today’s tragic New Jersey Transit train crash at the Hoboken terminal is a stark reminder of the importance of safety and security on our rail systems. Amtrak and the many commuter rail systems along the Northeast corridor are vital to efficient transportation along the east coast for daily commuters, business travel and tourism. Expansion of these systems is an important concern as we deal with current and future pressing environmental and energy challenges.
However, as we learn more about the cause of the most recent incident, we should not lose sight of the need to assure for the safety and security of the trains and rail systems that millions of commuters in the region depend upon every day.
