Ridgewood NJ, in the aftermath of today’s intense and damaging storm, NJ TRANSIT anticipates service on the Northeast Corridor will resume with weekend service at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday August 5, and Atlantic City Rail Line service will resume with regular weekday service.  Morris & Essex, Montclair-Boonton, Main, Bergen, Pascack Valley, North Jersey Coast Line, Raritan Valley and Port Jervis rail lines will remain temporarily suspended for tomorrow morning’s commute as crews continue to work around the clock to clear approximately 150 trees, repair signal systems and repair overhead wires which power trains.  These lines will resume service on a weekend schedule once these repairs are complete and tracks are inspected.

Crews will continue to work through the overnight hours 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.
