Re: How Trumpís Hudson Tunnel Snit Threatens the National Economy

The article is probably an exaggeration. They would almost certainly need to close only one tube at a time. They could still run a lot of rush hour trains one-way in the remaining tube; it would be reverse rush and late inbound rush (once they run out of inbound trains, but before they have managed to get any of the first batch of trains back to NJ) that would suffer most.

Frequent Newark to 33rd street direct PATH service could also pick up much of the slack. Buses could help with the reverse commute and the late inbound rush hour (instead of laying buses up after a first run, send them back out and back in again).

More work-at-home and flextime would help too.

Nevertheless, it is true that the national economy depends in a measurable way on people who live in NJ doing their jobs located in NYC.
