NEWARK, NJ — In response to direct requests from customers, NJ TRANSIT will offer additional busing from our highest ridership stations along the Morris & Essex Lines while trains are diverted to Hoboken this summer due to Amtrak’s repair work.
“The feedback from our customers is vital and is something I am personally committed to,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Steve Santoro. “For several weeks, we have been meeting and talking with our customers directly at “We Are Listening” forums, through M&E train rides and through our customer service ambassadors. Our customers spoke and we listened to provide as many travel options as possible.”
Beginning July 10th, between the morning peak hours of 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. only, buses will operate every half hour from Summit and Maplewood train stations to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York. Customers will be able to use discounted rail tickets and passes with Hoboken destinations on these buses. Note: This is a.m. service inbound to New York only. Customers returning from New York in the p.m. should travel to Hoboken via PATH or NY Waterway ferry for westbound M&E trains or board regularly scheduled buses at PABT.
NJ TRANSIT previously announced that additional busing will be provided from:
- South Orange train station direct to PABT (a.m. only)
- Newark Broad Street station to PABT (a.m. only)
With additional capacity as demand warrants on:
- #126 bus from Hoboken to PABT
- #108 bus from Newark Penn Station to PABT
- #107 bus from South Orange Station to PABT
