NJ TRANSIT SERVICE UPDATE FOR MORRIS & ESSEX LINE RAIL SERVICE ON MONDAY, MARCH 14TH
Limited Service Will Continue Between South Orange and New York and Hoboken; Gladstone Branch Remains Suspended
March 13, 2022
NEWARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT crews continue to work around the clock installing temporary poles and new overhead wires near Maplewood following last Monday’s strong winds. Installation is nearing completion, however, due to the inclement weather this weekend, a downed tree resulted in additional damage to the overhead wires along a section of the rail line near Mountain Station. As a result, limited service will continue to operate on a modified schedule between South Orange and Penn Station New York and Hoboken on Monday, March 14. The Gladstone Branch will remain suspended until further notice. 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. The Montclair-Boonton Line will continue to provide enhanced service to accommodate M&E customers.
