”As the public transportation industry awaits the findings of the investigation that will determine the cause of this tragic accident at the Hoboken, New Jersey terminal, we offer our thoughts and prayers to the commuters, their families, and NJ TRANSIT employees. 
Providing 10.6 billion trips in 2015, U.S. public transportation is a very safe mode of transportation and accidents are rare.  Today’s accident reminds us how important and critical safety is for our rail systems across the country.
The public transportation industry’s number one priority is – and will always be – safety and security.”
