NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The nation's third-largest transit system has welcomed several new board members as it continues to face commuter ire over delays and cancellations and struggles to complete a federally required safety system by year-end. New Jersey Transit held its monthly board meeting Wednesday night. The new members include a former state senator whose appointment to the board has been held up because he also serves on a state public utilities board. Bob Gordon attended Wednesday night's meeting as a non-voting member and said he expects the matter to be resolved soon. NJ Transit's board hasn't had a full complement of members for several years, and recent legislation ordered it to be expanded from eight to 13 members.
