Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean said that Amtrak needs a better plan to protect commuters during a pair of track outages at Penn Station over the summer that would last a combined 44 days under a reported draft engineering proposal.

“I’ve heard from my constituent commuters and they are irate. I’m speaking on their behalf when I say that recent serious disruptions on Amtrak’s rails are unacceptable to fare payers.

“Amtrak’s proposal for additional lengthy service outages at Penn Station, including during weekday commuting hours, should be reconsidered. New Jersey’s commuters deserve a better plan.”
