Bosses probably hasn’t ridden a bus in decades. It is a hell of a ride every day hours on end. Shocking was the effort to to absorb hundreds of pot holes in Livingston from the half-shuttered mall to Short Hills, Summit, Springfield, Maplewood, Irvington and Newark. This would also include Belleville. Nutley, Bloomfield, Paterson, Montclair, Kearny, and Clifton in the last few years as well.
While enduring an hour long NJTransit bus trek from Livingston to Newark, I would say most streets are in abject disrepair. While the bus was new it did not have shocks.
