In case of an NJT rail strike, NJT-operated rail services in upstate New York (Metro North "west of Hudson") will no longer operate. Metro North will run shuttle buses from certain "west of Hudson" stations to the Hudson Line (Metro North "east of Hudson").

I was previously led to believe that most of LIRR already had a third rail.

Third track. That's what they talked about in the clip, and that's what the issue is.

I love how everyone who uses the LIRR says how all the trains are beyond crowded, and then they get up in arms over proposals to reduce crowding

Nothing surprises me about Long Island anymore. They've blocked various things in the past that could have lessened the strain on the Island and say tax payers 1000s of $$$ each year... The Island has a affordable housing crisis due to every affordable housing project , even the ones mixed in being NIMBY'd to death..

A few Amtrak trains serve Princeton Jct and New Brunswick on weekdays, but these will only be useful for reverse commuters in case of an NJT strike. Peak direction commuters will have to work from home, drive, take a shuttle bus from Hamilton or Metropark to PATH in Newark/Harrison or take Amtrak from Trenton or Metropark to NY Penn (to the extent tickets are available - it's all-reserved service).

Amtrak isnt very reliable, right? I took it several times and it was never on time. 1-2 hrs delay is nothing uncommon.
