NEWARK, NJ — Beginning next week, NJ TRANSIT will adjust weekday midday service on the Pascack Valley Line to accommodate necessary track work. 

NJ TRANSIT crews will make priority repairs to the Essex Street grade crossing in Hackensack to address damage to the crossing caused by a motor vehicle.  While the track is out of service, NJ TRANSIT will also perform regular track maintenance on the line.

 

Starting Monday, September 14 and continuing through Friday, October 2, 2009, buses will replace midday Pascack Valley Line trains to allow for the repairs and track work.  Please refer to shuttle bus schedules for departure times and locations.

 

Customers are advised of the following:

 

As an alternate travel option, Pascack Valley Line customers traveling between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. may use their tickets and passes on Coach USA (Red & Tan) buses operating between the Port Authority Bus Terminal and locations in Bergen and Rockland counties, as well as on NJ TRANSIT Bus Nos. 76, 161 and 165.
