NJ TRANSIT has also added a weekday evening stop at Newark Liberty International Airport Station for the North Jersey Coast Line (NJCL).

  • NJCL Train 3269, the 5:34 PM departure from PSNY to Long Branch will no longer stop at Secaucus to improve Raritan Valley Line connections in Newark. Train 3267 will add a Secaucus stop at 5:35 p.m.

  • Eight Main/Bergen County Lines and Pascack Valley Line trains beginning with Train 1271 (departing at 6:02 PM on the Bergen County Line) will depart Hoboken 1 to 3 minutes later to extend connection times at Secaucus from seven minutes to ten minutes.
