UPDATE: Elizabeth and North Elizabeth Stations: Low Level Boarding due to Platform Plate Installation - Beginning Saturday, August 5, 2017


Updates in RED.

During weekends from 7 p.m. Saturdays to 12 p.m. Sundays beginning August 5 and continuing through mid-October 2017, new platform plates will be installed at Elizabeth Station, which will affect boarding at North Elizabeth Station. During these hours, the outbound track (track 4) will be closed at Elizabeth and North Elizabeth stations. 

The plate installation work will not occur on holidays or during inclement weather.

Work will begin on the east end of the outbound (westbound) platform at Elizabeth Station.

During this time:

  • Elizabeth Station customers will board at the low-level platform on the west end of the outbound platform.
  • North Elizabeth Station customers will board at the low-level platform on the east end of the outbound platform. 

Accessible Information
During platform plate work and track closure, the westbound platform at Elizabeth Station will not be ADA accessible. Customers who are unable to use stairs may consider the following alternatives:

  • Customers who normally board at Elizabeth and North Elizabeth may use nearby accessible stations including Linden (only ramps available) and Rahway.
  • Customers traveling FROM Elizabeth Station to points west (Trenton/Bay Head): Board an eastbound train at Elizabeth/North Elizabeth to Newark Penn or Newark Airport stations and return on an outbound train to your destination. Customers following this alternate travel route will not be charged a higher fare.

Bus Option

  • Elizabeth Station is served by select trips on NJ TRANSIT’s No. 62 bus which serves Newark Penn Station.

For your safety, please obey all posted signs and do not travel through barricaded areas.
