Cross Honoring on Bus, Rail and Light Rail Remains in Effect Monday

January 24, 2005 7:00 a.m.

NEWARK, NJ As a result of severe weather conditions overnight, including extremely cold temperatures and high winds, Amtrak has restricted switch movements on its Northeast Corridor, thereby limiting the number of trains that can operate on the Corridor this morning.

As a result, NJ TRANSIT service for travelers to New York will be modified as follows:

  • Northeast Corridor Trains will operate every 15 minutes between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. between Trenton and New York.
  • Jersey Avenue Service During the peak period from 7:45 a.m. to just after 9 a.m. bus shuttle service will be provided between Jersey Avenue and the New Brunswick rail station where customers can connect with a Northeast Corridor train.
  • North Jersey Coast Line All diesel trains will operate on a normal schedule. All electric trains will make local stops. There will be no electric express service.
  • MidTOWN DIRECT Service -- MidTOWN DIRECT trains will operate to and from Hoboken terminal through midnight tonight. PATH will cross honor NJ TRANSIT tickets and passes at Hoboken and 33rd Street. Trains will leave Hoboken on their regularly scheduled New York departure times.
  • Morris & Essex Lines -- Morris & Essex Lines trains will operate on a modified schedule generally within 15 minutes of regularly scheduled departure times.

Detailed schedules for this morning's modified operation on the Northeast Corridor, NJCL, and Morris & Essex lines are available by clicking here .

All other NJ TRANSIT train service is operating on a regular schedule. In addition, all bus and light rail service is operating on a regular schedule.

To accommodate customers, NJ TRANSIT will continue to cross honor rail, bus and light rail tickets throughout the day.
