A group of angry commuters is hoping to bring changes to NJ Transit using tweets.
According to a My9nj.com report, Ryan Kiuken, an HR consultant who commutes from Ridgewood to New York’s Penn Station, is leading the virtual charge.
Kiuken’s fight against the NJ Transit started one morning when he tweeted about his train being late, the report said. When other Jersey residents started retweeting and responding to his post, Kiuken told My9nj.com that he thought it might be an effective way to spark change.
Kiuken teamed up with a Twitter account that tweeted about being “Delayed at NJ Transit,” and from there started connecting with other angry commuters looking for change, the report said.
Kiuken attended the latest NJ Transit Board meeting to voice some of his concerns about the transit system, and suggested the Board set up a better system for being responsive to riders' tweets, the report said.
