Raritan Valley Line (RVL)

Schedules were adjusted on some RVL trains to minimize service impacts on customers to the greatest extent possible. Highlights are listed below; however, we strongly encourage you to review the new RVL schedule to determine if any changes affect your regular trip.

To proactively address the potential service adjustment impacts, NJ TRANSIT will offer a 10-percent discount on all NJ TRANSIT rail tickets and passes for travel in November, December and January while the mandated hardware installation is completed. The 10-percent discount applies to
NJ TRANSIT rail service only and does not apply to Metro-North service.


  • Off-peak, one-seat Raritan Valley Line service to/from Penn Station New York (PSNY) will temporarily terminate/originate at Newark Penn Station beginning Monday September 10.
  • It is important to note that RVL customers will be receiving the same level of service to/from PSNY, but you will be required to transfer to/from New York trains at Newark Penn Station.

Be sure to check the new schedule for other adjustments, especially if you connect with other services.

During this time, you may want to update your travel alert preferences in your My Transit account. If you do not have a My Transit account and are a frequent traveler on NJ TRANSIT, sign up to receive alerts HERE.
