Weekday Rail Schedules Adjusted June 4th

NJ TRANSIT will adjust weekday rail schedules, beginning June 4, to accommodate the installation of Positive Train Control (PTC) on its rail fleet. NJ TRANSIT is installing hardware components for its PTC safety system on locomotives and cab cars, requiring that equipment to be taken out of service for the work.

Some trains will be temporarily discontinued or have changes of origin/destination, primarily on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line, Morris & Essex Lines and Pascack Valley Line. Other trains throughout the system may have schedule and/or station stop adjustments. These schedule adjustments are temporary and will be restored in early 2019.

Rail customers are advised to check their June 4 rail timetables closely to view these changes and evaluate their travel options. The timetables are available on or at NJ TRANSIT Customer Service offices.
