The South Orange Board of Trustees Monday update on NJTransit had little news for frustrated commuters.

After the October schedule change, which commuters charge lengthens the trip to and from the city, and reduces the number of seats, NJTransit officials told residents they would study the situation.

Village President Alex Torpey reported NJTransit will have have completed a ridership study by the end of December; officials will share that data with South Orange at that time.

Torpey talked with NJTransit's Jim Weinstein, who told Torpey if there is "an obvious fix," the agency would pursue it.

In addition, NJTransit will see if there is an express train that can add a stop in South Orange. 

Last week, NJTransit officials met with residents.

Scott Greenstone briefed the public on that meeting. Likewise, trustee Mark Rosner updated the trustees on Monday about that meeting.

Rosner told the trustees that NJTransit and the citizens will meet again in January.
