NJ Transit: Bathrooms fixed at NYC's Penn Station

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Transit says its bathrooms at New York City's Penn Station have been fixed.

A passenger in June had complained that a broken mirror and tissue holder were being held together with duct tape. NJ Transit Executive Director Jim Weinstein and state Transportation Commissioner Jim Simpson said last week that they were embarrassed to learn nothing had been repaired a month later.

NJ Transit spokesman John Durso Jr. tells The Record newspaper the bathrooms have been fixed and will be monitored hourly instead of 3 times a day.

Amtrak owns Penn Station. But NJ Transit hired a contractor to keep the bathrooms clean.
