I can't say I blame them for speaking out!  After several nightmarish commutes due to derailments and old equipment, commuters are speaking out.  The #NoPayMay movement is starting to make some noise as some riders are urging others to use their April monthly ticket for the month of May.  Will it catch on?  

From NJ.com:

Frustrated NJ Transit commuters have been circulating fliers on trains and waging a nascent social media campaign dubbed "NoPayMay" to encourage rail riders to attempt to use April monthly passes next month as a form of protest.

The #NoPayMay movement comes after weeks of delayed trains, two derailments and other mishaps that have left commuters at their breaking point.

Commuting doesn't come cheap I will say - something needs to be done.  Thoughts?
