    NJ Transit makes adjustments to train schedule before U2 concert

    The band U2 has always had an international influence on music and, in some cases, politics and apparently on Wednesday night, the band also will have a heavy influence on New Jersey’s transit system.

    According to The Star-Ledger, NJ Transit officials have announced a number of schedule adjustments to help accommodate tonight’s concert at New Meadowlands Stadium.

    For one, NJ Transit is substituting some single-level rail trains with multi-levels, increasing seating capacity by nearly 20 percent.

    You’ll also notice more customer service representatives and employee volunteers to help fans trying to get to the stadium.

    According to The Star-Ledger, two years ago commuters experienced several problems when trying to get to a U2 concert at the old Giants Stadium.
