NEWARK — NJ Transit has restored rail service on the Northeast Corridor line from the Trenton Transit Center to New York Penn Station. Customers are advised to expect 30-45 minute delays due to ongoing signal problems caused by the flood in Trenton.
As NJ Transit continues to work toward restoring the state’s bus and rail network to normal operations in the wake of Hurricane Irene, some customers will still experience delays and cancellations on their lines due to ongoing flooding and storm damage at locations across the system. Customers are advised to check njtransit.com for the latest service information before traveling.
North Jersey Coast line trains are still subject to 10-15 minute delays this morning. Raritan Valley line trains are not stopping in Bound Brook due to flooding. Eastbound (Inbound) Raritan Valley customers at Somerville and Bridgewater are advised to board on the westbound (Outbound) platform for service to Newark. Westbound (Outbound) Raritan Valley Line customers wishing to go to Bridgewater or Somerville are advised to go west to Raritan Station and take an eastbound train back to those Stations.
“Our goal is to bring the bus and rail system back to 100 percent as soon as possible, with the understanding that Mother Nature moves at her own pace,” said NJ Transit Executive Director James Weinstein. “I want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we work through the residual impacts of Hurricane Irene. And I want to thank NJ Transit’s hard-working employees for continuing to give their all to get the job done.”
