Penn Station New York Improvements

Repair work continues at Penn Station New York, where Amtrak is rehabilitating tracks, switches and other critical infrastructure that supports train service in and out of the busiest rail terminal in the country.

During this time, select Midtown Direct trains on the Montclair-Boonton and North Jersey Coast lines are being diverted to Hoboken. Additionally, some reverse-peak Midtown Direct trains are originating in Hoboken. Other Midtown Direct trains along the Morris & Essex Lines will bypass Newark Broad Street Station during the morning and afternoon rush hours to avoid crowding conditions on the platforms at Newark Broad Street Station.

Amtrak is repairing or renewing two railroad interlockings at the east end of Penn Station New York which are used by NJ TRANSIT, Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road trains every day. The current service changes are scheduled to continue through the summer. Ambassadors are directing customers at Hoboken Terminal and Penn Station New York while the work is underway.

NJ TRANSIT thanks you for your patience as we work with Amtrak to improve the safety and reliability of your service.
