NJ TRANSIT Rail Service: Temporary Service Adjustments

Effective Monday, August 10th, temporary service adjustments have been made to select Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line, and Raritan Valley Line trains.

Bus, light rail and Access Link services will all operate on a regular weekday schedule.

Ridership on rail remains down approximately 80% as a result of the current COVID-19 public health emergency. While ridership remains at these levels, we’re temporarily suspending service on select trains (in red below) to accelerate our Positive Train Control (PTC) project’s Field Functionality Testing (FFT) on the Newark Division rail lines while minimizing any impacts to customers. This will improve our timeline for transitioning to Extended Revenue Service Demonstration (ERSD) on these lines as we work toward full PTC implementation by December 31, 2020. Please see affected trains below in red, along with the suggested alternatives.
