NORTHEAST CORRIDOR (NEC)

In June, schedules were adjusted on some NEC trains to accommodate the installation of PTC equipment. Beginning October 14, additional trains will be temporarily discontinued while others have service changes as we accelerate these installations. Highlights are listed below; however, we strongly encourage you to review the new NEC 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.
