Crews to Work Around the Clock to Repair Tracks

NEWARK, NJ -- As crews prepare to work around the clock to resume full service, NJ TRANSIT announced tonight that it will operate a close to normal schedule for tomorrow morning's rush hour. The modified schedule includes some express trains making local stops, MidTOWN DIRECT trains being diverted into and out of Hoboken Terminal, and seven morning cancellations. The morning schedule is a result of only one track out of two available for train service between New York and Newark to accommodate crews working to restore service on all tracks.

Similar to this evening's operation, the Corporation will cancel its smaller, shorter distance trains between 6 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. To accommodate those customers, some North Jersey Coast Line and Northeast Corridor express trains will make local stops. In addition, extra cars will be put on a number of trains traveling on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line. Customers are urged to listen to news reports before they leave their homes tomorrow morning and to listen to announcements at their stations.

MidTOWN DIRECT trains will operate to and from Hoboken Terminal throughout the day, where customers can take PATH or New York Waterway to get into Manhattan (NJ TRANSIT rail passes will be honored on these services).

Specific train information is as follows:

Northeast Corridor Trains Cancelled

Train 3819, the 7:03 a.m. out of Penn Station New York
