August 5, 2020
NEWARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT crews, working through the night, have been making progress in clearing more than 250 downed trees to allow additional rail lines to open. In addition to the previously announced Northeast Corridor resuming service at 10:00 a.m. utilizing a weekend schedule, the Raritan Valley, Main/Bergen County and Pascack Valley Lines will also resume service at 10:00 a.m. on weekend schedules. The Atlantic City Rail Line has resumed on a regular weekday schedule.
Due to the extensive nature of the damage, the North Jersey Coast Line, Morris & Essex, Montclair-Boonton Line, Gladstone Branch and the Port Jervis Line between Port Jervis and Suffern remain suspended as crews continue to work as quickly and safely as possible to restore service. Crews continue to work to clear trees, repair signal systems and repair overhead wires which power the trains. These lines will resume service on a weekend schedule once these repairs are complete and tracks are inspected.
Bus, light rail and Access Link services are operating on a regular weekday schedule. Rail tickets and passes are being cross-honored with PATH at Newark Penn Station, Hoboken, and 33rd Street, NJ TRANSIT light rail, bus and private carriers.
