NJ TRANSIT TO RESUME REGULAR EVENING NORTHEAST CORRIDOR AND NORTH JERSEY COAST LINE SERVICE TODAY
MidTOWN DIRECT Trains Continue to Operate to Hoboken Today, With Regular Service Planned for Wednesday, July 16
NEWARK, NJ – NJ TRANSIT rail service is returning to normal following yesterday’s train derailment on the Northeast Corridor in Secaucus.
Beginning at 12 noon today, NJ TRANSIT will begin operating normal service in and out of New York on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line. As previously announced however, MidTOWN DIRECT service will continue to operate in and out of Hoboken Terminal for the remainder of the day where connecting PATH and ferry service is available.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 16, regular NJ TRANSIT rail service will resume.
PATH and New York Waterway will continue to honor NJ TRANSIT rail passes for the remainder of the day today. NJ TRANSIT and private carrier buses operating to and from New York, and Hudson-Bergen Light Rail will also continue to honor NJ TRANSIT rail passes for the remainder of the day.
NJ TRANSIT Executive Director George D. Warrington thanked NJ TRANSIT and Amtrak employees for working around the clock to restore service.
During this morning’s rush hour, NJ TRANSIT operated a modified rail schedule, canceling seven trains – two North Jersey Coast Line and five Northeast Corridor trains – and rerouting MidTOWN DIRECT trains to Hoboken to maximize its equipment and a single-track rail operation between Newark and New York as work crews completed repairs to the damaged track.
