NJ Transit to restore service to Penn Station by Sept. 5

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

New Jersey Transit says that the agency plans to restore full service to New York Penn Station by Tuesday, Sept. 5 following Amtrak’s completion of Phase One of track repairs.

The repairs and improvements inside the station required service cutbacks, which affected hundreds of thousands of commuters who use NJ Transit and the Long Island Rail Road.

NJ Transit says that all Morris & Essex Lines Midtown Direct trains will resume service to and from Penn Station and will no longer be diverted to Hoboken. North Jersey Coast Line trains also will resume operating into Hoboken Terminal.

“I want to thank our customers for their patience and flexibility during the summer months,” NJ Transit Executive Director Steven Santoro said in a statement.

The agency says that all fare discounts and cross-honoring between bus, rail, light rail, PATH and NY Waterway service will end on Sept. 2 at 3 a.m.

NJ Transit Service will operate on a weekend/holiday schedule on Labor Day, Sept. 4.
