NJ Transit to restore service into NYC Monday - FOX 35 News Orlando

NJ Transit rail service into NYC restored

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

NJ Transit rail service from New Jersey into the New York City was restored on Monday, 11 weeks after Hurricane Sandy caused extensive damage to transit's equipment and infrastructure.

There will be 332 trips in and out of New York, up from 327 currently. The five additional train sets will be on the North Jersey coast line, which was the hardest hit from the storm. Two of the trains will operate between Long Branch and Penn Station.

The remaining seven trains will either originate or terminate in Bay Head. Four of those trains will resume service between Bay Head and Hoboken.

NJ Transit executive director James Weinstein said that rail service into the city will be restored to pre-Sandy levels. Service into Hoboken continues to run on a reduced schedule due to electrical problems caused by flooding from the storm, with the Gladstone branch of the Morris & Essex line the most affected.

"The full restoration of our New York Penn Station rail service marks another important milestone for NJ Transit and our customers, the majority of whom commute to and from Midtown Manhattan," Weinstein said.
