PTC - Pascack Valley Line: NJ TRANSIT Adjusts Weekday Schedules for Positive Train Control Installation - Beginning Monday, June 4, 2018
May 07, 2018

NJ TRANSIT continues installation of Positive Train Control (PTC) equipment on its rail fleet. To accommodate this critical safety upgrade, weekday rail schedules are being adjusted to allow for hardware components to be installed on locomotives and cab cars.

Beginning Monday, June 4th, some trains will be temporarily discontinued or have changes of origin/destination. This will impact customers along the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line, Morris & Essex Lines and Pascack Valley Line.

Other trains throughout the system will have schedule and/or station stop adjustments. These schedule adjustments are temporary and will be restored in early 2019.
