Passenger Records Train Going Through 8 Stops With Door Open


A New Jersey Transit train has traveled through at least eight stops with a door open and has been pulled out of service. A passenger captured video of it.

Rider Jeffrey Spitery shared cellphone video with WNBC-TV showing people moving around the train Tuesday night while the wind from the open door whips their hair.

Spitery says the train stopped at Newark Penn Station while a conductor searched for an open door. The train then continued. Spitery says as the train approached his stop in Metuchen he found a door “wide open.”

New Jersey Transit says a train should not move while a door is open. It says it’s investigating.

There’s no indication anyone was injured while the train door was open.
