Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Service Outage

Our Hudson-Bergen Light Rail West Side Avenue Branch in Jersey City is temporarily out of service until further notice due to a Jersey City Municipal Utilities Authority (JCMUA) project. The JCMUA is repairing a sewer line that passes beneath the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail tracks, requiring the closure of the West Side Avenue, Martin Luther King Drive and Garfield Avenue stations.

During the outage, NJ TRANSIT is providing express substitute bus service between the three closed stations and Liberty State Park Station, where connecting Hudson-Bergen Light Rail service is available. Shuttle buses will also provide local bus service between each of the three stations.

Electrical power will be shut off at the three affected stations. To purchase tickets, customers can use Ticket Vending Machines at Liberty State Park Station or West Side Avenue Station Park & Ride. Monthly tickets are also available on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app.

As the utility work nears completion, customers will be advised of a reopening date for the three stations. For further information, visit our website at
