This summer’s service disruptions worsened by uptick in unplanned absences on Mondays and Fridays, agency says

Lisa Lebowitz was sitting in a delayed NJ Transit train departing Hoboken one recent Monday evening when she overheard an exasperated passenger complain about the frequency of last-minute cancellations.
