Elizabeth Rail Station Elevator Out Of Service

ELIZABETH — The elevator serving the outbound (westbound) platform at Elizabeth Station will remain out of service until mid-September due to significant damage to the cab car caused by vandalism.

Until the elevator is repaired, customers requiring accessible service should consider the following travel options:
