One train causes commuter pain
Evening commute headache in store for thousands
An earlier NJ Transit train mishap has now had a ripple effect on much of the rail transportation system in the NY / NJ area – including a commuting hell for Hoboken.
Slow speed derailment causes evening commute delays
Due to an earlier slow-speed derailment within the Penn Station complex, NJ TRANSIT service in and out of New York Penn Station will be impacted during the afternoon and evening hours of Monday, October 25, 2010.
EXPECTED SERVICE IMPACTS
- All Midtown Direct trains will originate and terminate at Hoboken Terminal, instead of New York. PATH trains are cross honoring NJ TRANSIT tickets and passes between Hoboken and 33rd Street.
- Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains are subject to significant delays in and out of New York during the afternoon and evening hours. Expect crowding conditions, as some trains will be combined to reduce congestion.
- Customers on the Main, Bergen County, Pascack Valley and Port Jervis lines are advised to travel via Hoboken Terminal, rather than via New York and Secaucus. Use PATH between 33rd Street and Hoboken Terminal.
- Please allow additional travel time on all rail lines.
ALTERNATE TRAVEL OPTIONS
- PATH trains are cross honoring NJ TRANSIT rail tickets and passes at 33rd Street, Hoboken and Newark Penn Station.
- NJ TRANSIT buses are cross honoring rail tickets and passes systemwide.
- Private Carrier buses are cross honoring rail tickets and passes on trips to and from Port Authority Bus Terminal.
