NJT-14-045

NEWARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT today announced that regular rail service will be restored on the Montclair-Boonton Line starting with the first scheduled trains on Tuesday, September 2, approximately a week earlier than anticipated, following emergency track repairs and single tracking between Bay Street and Montclair State University stations.

 

Montclair-Boonton Line service was disrupted on Tuesday, August 19, due to a slow-speed derailment between Bay Street and Walnut Street stations in Montclair that caused damage to the track.   

 

To accommodate the repairs, all Montclair-Boonton Line trains have operated on a single track on a portion of the line.  During this time, service has operated on a special weekday schedule, subject to delays of up to 20 minutes and some train cancellations.

 

NJ TRANSIT thanks customers for their patience throughout the emergency track work.  Customers are reminded to visit njtransit.com for the latest service information.
