More NJ Transit trains to run

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

New Jersey Transit has restored limited service on the Morris and Essex, Pascack Valley and Raritan Valley Lines.  It is also expanding train service on the Northeast Corridor line.

"The restoration of limited Morris & Essex service and the addition of more trains on the Northeast Corridor is yet another step forward for NJ Train sit rail customers," said board chairman James Simpson. "Even with this news, service into New York Penn remains extremely limited. For this reason, we continue to encourage our customers to utilize NJ Transit's emergency bus and ferry operations for their commutes into Jersey City, Weehawken, as well as into Midtown and Lower Manhattan."

On the Morris & Essex Lines, crews continue to remove fallen trees, and are replacing signal wires, power systems and repairing rail damage incurred at critical locations, such as in Kearny Junction.

Service along the Gladstone Branch and the Montclair-Boonton Lines will remain suspended due fallen trees, track damage and broken overhead wire poles.  The New Jersey Coast Line also remains suspended.

A new discounted ferry service started Monday.

Operated by New York Waterway, it runs from Hoboken Terminal to Pier 79 on West 39th Street in Midtown Manhattan. Officials say that should help alleviate some congestion at the Port Authority Bus terminal in New York and give customers traveling to Manhattan additional travel options.

Customers using this ferry service will be able to use free shuttle buses for further travel within Manhattan.
