Temporary Service Adjustments in Effect

November 25, 2020

NEWARK, NJNorth Jersey Coast Line (NJCL) rail service will continue to operate on a modified schedule through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, November 26 through 29, as the result of a derailment Tuesday morning in Perth Amboy.  

For the remainder of service today November 25th, bus service is being provided between South Amboy and Metropark, with stops at Perth Amboy, Woodbridge and Avenel.  Customers can transfer at Metropark for Northeast Corridor (NEC) trains to and from Penn Station New York. North Jersey Coast Line trains are operating on a normal weekday schedule between South Amboy and Bay Head.

For Thursday through Sunday, trains will resume operating along the entire length of the NJCL on a modified schedule and the substitute busing between South Amboy and Metropark will end. This modified schedule will result in service every two hours for Hazlet, Middletown, Red Bank and Little Silver for all four days. All other stations will operate hourly service. Shuttle connections in Long Branch will be maintained.  Customers should adjust their travel patterns accordingly and leave extra time.  Customers can view the complete modified schedule HERE.
