TELL US: How Sastified Are You with NJ Transit?

A survey conducted by the company puts overall customer satisfaction at a 6 on a scale of 0 to 10.

On a scale from zero to ten, how would you rate your overall satisfaction with NJ Transit?

The agency recently released the results of their 2012 fiscal year quarter 4 satisfaction survey, which was conducted online and in the field between June 8 and July 29, according to a NJ Transit press release.

The survey asked rail, light rail, bus and Access Link customers to rate NJ Transit on a scale of 0 to 10. Customers were also asked to consider 41 attributes of the system related to facilities, service, vehicles, communications and the overall experience.

Customers ranked their overall satisfaction with NJ Transit at a six, which is in the "above average" category.

July marked the first complete year of Scorecard, an initiative designed to provide the public with a clear measurement of how the organization is performing, according to NJ Transit. Scorecard is also a tool used to help drive decisions in an effort to improve the overall customer experience, they said.

“While we are proud of achieving our fiscal year 2012 goal for overall customer satisfaction, our work is far from over. We will continue to raise the bar to further boost that score by making improvements across the system, with a focus on the areas most important to customers,” said Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chairman James Simpson.

NJ Transit hopes to achieve a rating of 6.5 during fiscal year 2013, which will end in July 2013.

I wish that the there was a functional train station in Freehold Borough. The old train station that operates as a bus station would bring a lot of good traffic to the area. The price of bus tickets has climbed dramatically over the last five years. It now costs sixty dollars for two people to take a round trip bus to NYC for the day. That seems a bit ridiculous.

Yes, $29.50 for a New York round trip ticket. And no assurance it won't take two hours and a half hours instead of one and a quarter. When the Lincoln Tunnel has more lanes heading out of the city (like Friday afternoons) the ride can be interminable. Bus lanes are needed!

I would have loved to vote in your poll below but there was no poll below. Our overall satisfaction with NJ Transit hovers between 2 and 3. We are a commuting family and every evening, literally every evening, there is a 30-40 minute wait at the Port for an outbound bus. From the moment we get on line to the time we get off the bus in Freehold is usually 2 hours. In rush hour. And there's nothing we can do.
