Electric NJ Transit Trains Coming Back to Hoboken

Four months after Superstorm Sandy hit New Jersey, additional rail service is returning to Hoboken.

New Jersey Transit says electric trains will start running through the Hoboken Terminal on March 24.

The agency fixed an electric substation that, like much of the Hoboken Terminal, was decimated in Sandy. The substation provides power to trains.

NJ Transit Executive Director James Weinstein says the agency wants to replace the substation in the future. He says the restoration of electric service shows significant progress in post-Sandy recovery.

The agency eventually will add 21 trains out of Hoboken and restore full service to 19 trains running abbreviated trips.

NJ Transit suffered an estimated $400 million in damages to its rail cars, locomotives and infrastructure during Sandy.
