NJ TRANSIT RESUMES SERVICE ON ENTIRE M&E AND GLADSTONE BRANCH ON MARCH 15TH

Modified Weekday Service Resumes on M&E; Gladstone Branch Operates on a Modified Schedule Between Gladstone and Summit

March 14, 2022

NEWARK, NJ NJ TRANSIT crews have successfully completed enough damage removal and repair in the Maplewood area to allow Morris & Essex Line (M&E) and Gladstone Branch trains to resume operations at all stations.  Beginning Tuesday, March 15, the M&E and Gladstone Branch will operate on modified weekday schedules.  The Gladstone Branch will operate between Gladstone and Summit only.  Gladstone Branch customers can transfer at Summit for destinations east of Summit.  Last Monday’s strong winds took down a large tree in Maplewood, resulting in extensive damage to the overhead wires and the steel structure that supports the wires.  Please see below for service information. 

Cross-honoring will remain in effect for Morris & Essex (M&E) and Gladstone Branch customers on the Raritan Valley and Montclair-Boonton Lines as well as NJ TRANSIT & private carrier buses.

All M&E customers should continue to allow for extra travel time and are strongly encouraged to customize their service alerts on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app to receive updates via push notifications, monitor MyTransit Alerts, the M&E Twitter feed @NJTRANSIT_ME  and njtransit.com/MorrisEssexUpdate for the latest service information.
