In recession, Dinky cuts service

As it chugs through the greatest economic downturn since the Great Depression, the Dinky is now running a little less often.

And folks making their way back from the Big Apple on Saturday (or Sunday) night won't be able to hop the 1:13 a.m. Dinky anymore. It doesn't exist.

Neither do six other Dinky's. But there is good news for students: unless you are an early riser on Saturday or Sunday morning, that's the only change you're likely to notice.

On July 12, NJ Transit also cut all Saturday and Sunday morning Dinky trips before 9:27 a.m. To be more specific: no more Dinkys at 6:01 a.m., 7:01 a.m., 7:27 a.m., 8:01 a.m., 8:27 a.m. and 9:01 a.m.

Yet another reason to sleep in on both days.
