NJ TRANSIT TO OPERATE NEAR NORMAL SCHEDULE FOR TONIGHT’S PEAK OUT OF NY

Crews Continue to Work to Re-open all Tracks

NEWARK, NJ – NJ TRANSIT will operate a close to normal schedule for this evening’s rush hour from Penn Station New York, with some express trains making local stops and MidTOWN DIRECT trains continuing to travel into and out of Hoboken. The slightly modified schedule is a result of a single-track operation between New York and Newark to accommodate crews working to restore service on all tracks

In an effort to run as close to a regular service out New York as possible, five of the Corporation’s smaller, shorter distance trains will be cancelled between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and some express North Jersey Coast Line and Northeast Corridor trains will make local stops to accommodate customers whose trains were eliminated. Customers are urged to listen to announcements in Penn Station New York for more information. Additional staff will be on hand to assist.

MidTOWN DIRECT trains will operate to and from Hoboken Terminal on their regular schedule. In addition, extra cars will be put on a number of trains traveling on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line.

Trains traveling eastbound to New York on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line will continue to operate on an hourly schedule for the remainder of the day.

Customers are urged to listen to news reports tonight and tomorrow morning for the latest information regarding tomorrow’s service.

NJ TRANSIT continues to cross honor all PATH, NJ TRANSIT bus, private carrier bus and New York waterway ferry tickets.
