January 24, 2005 3:00 p.m.

NEWARK, NJ - Most NJ TRANSIT services will resume regularly scheduled weekday service in time for this evening's rush hour. Beginning at 4 p.m., Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line, Morris & Essex Lines, and Raritan Valley Line trains will operate on a normal weekday schedule. However, MidTOWN DIRECT service will continue to operate out of Hoboken. Customers should anticipate some delays enroute due to slow boarding, alighting and frozen doors.

Select rail service modifications include the following:


  • North Jersey Coast Line (NJCL) - NJCL diesel trains to Bayhead will make all local stops after Woodbridge. In addition, all Long Branch electric trains will make all local stops to cover the cancellation of five South Amboy locals and one Matawan local train. Train 3273, the 5:58 p.m. departure from Penn Station New York, will remain an express.
  • MidTOWN DIRECT Service - MidTOWN DIRECT trains will continue to operate to and from Hoboken Terminal through midnight tonight. Customers may use their NJ TRANSIT tickets and passes to board PATH trains at 33rd Street for service to Hoboken. All MidTOWN DIRECT trains will depart Hoboken on their regularly scheduled New York departure times.
  • Morris & Essex Lines - Most Morris & Essex Line trains will operate on a normal schedule, with some adjustments to westbound train departure times including a few cancellations. However, additional service will be available for customers on MidTOWN DIRECT trains leaving Hoboken Terminal.

All bus, rail and light rail services are expected to operate on normal weekday schedules tomorrow.
