In the aftermath of the intense and damaging Tropical Storm Isaias, NJ TRANSIT is operating weekend service on the Northeast Corridor, Main-Bergen County Line, Pascack Valley Line, Raritan Valley Line, and Port Jervis Line between Suffern and Port Jervis on Wednesday August 5; Atlantic City Rail Line service will resume with regular weekday service.

Morris & Essex, Gladstone, Montclair-Boonton, North Jersey Coast Line, and Port Jervis rail lines will remain temporarily suspended as crews continue to work around the clock to clear over 250 trees, repair signal systems and repair overhead wires which power trains. There are close to 200 trees down on the Hoboken Division alone.

  • Morris & Essex/Gladstone/Montclair-Boonton – crews are still removing trees and repairing extensive overhead wire damage.
  • North Jersey Coast Line – trees have been removed. However repairs are still ongoing to overhead wires.
  • Port Jervis – crews are still removing trees between Suffern and Port Jervis.

These lines will resume service on a weekend schedule once these repairs are complete and tracks are inspected.

Crews will continue to work to repair the extensive damage to signal systems and overhead wires caused by the storm’s strong winds, which also toppled numerous trees throughout the state.

Bus, light rail and Access Link services will all operate on a regular weekday schedule. Rail ticket and passes will be cross-honored with PATH at Newark Penn Station, Hoboken, and 33rd Street, NJ TRANSIT light rail, bus and private carriers.
