EDISON - New Jersey Transit says it is back on schedule after a morning of delays and cross-honoring.
A spokeswoman says repairs related to Tuesday's derailment near Penn Station have been completed. The agency says it is back on schedule for trains in and out of New York City.
Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains were delayed for up to an hour for most of the morning. Commuters gave NJ Transit high marks for its digital alerts on its web page and Twitter, but with key repairs happening overnight, some admitted that they would have liked more details.
Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.) released a statement today saying, "The existing tunnel is over a century old and not capable of handling the increased traffic we will see in the future." He blames Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) for canceling the ARC tunnel project, which would have increased train traffic under the Hudson River.
