Snow-Covered Bus Stops: Who's to Blame?

As many NJ commuters struggle to navigate mounds of snow, it remains unclear who's responsible for clearing the areas.

Some NJ Transit bus stops in North Jersey were still not shoveled over the weekend and whose responsibility it is to clear the areas remains uncertain, according to a CBS New York report.

Bus stops in Hackensack and Clifton were among those where commuters have had to trudge through mounds of snow. One Hackensack woman said she's fallen several times, according to CBS.

NJ Transit, the state Department of Transportation and some of the municipalities said it wasn't their job to clear the snow. Even in places like Paramus, where the snow had been shoveled, municipal officials were not sure who did the work, according to NJ.com.

How do the bus stops look near you? Who do you think should be responsible for clearing them? Tell us in the comments section below.

Well I feel if NJT wants the money for the bus rides it is their responsibility. The trains clean the stations so why not the buses. Bud riders are suppose to be safe at the stops and not killed by a car trying to catch a bus.

Who's to blame? The snow crystals that develop in the upper atmosphere and then absorb moisture and finally fall to earth. That's who's to blame.

I'm certain the all the bus stops in Teaneck are well maintained. Escept the one on Chestnut and Cedar Lane.

By this point, it's not snow- it's mounds of ice. BIn Montclair eastbound Blfd Ave @ Church - no access: had to go down to corner which was ice sheet. Fell. Rescued by young people. Too hard for this old lady. (Lots of corners were blocked)
