New service to NFK will be seen early spring of 2019. Jobs will be changing again. Superintendent Jarrett Alston is giving employees until January 1, to obtain new uniforms as well as providing more efficient service to the passengers and operations of the train.
Please be mindful with riding in any PTI service, especially Lyft or Uber. There is a huge debate going on between the General Committee and Labor Relations the safety of travel with these companies. They have no regulations or hours of service amongst their employees. Also many don't have a $1,000,000 policy of coverage which is a requirement. If conditions of travel or you suspect something about your driver, please contact your supervisor and crew dispatch.
