Full Restoration of NJT Rail Service Months Away

NJ Transit is still feeling the effects of Superstorm Sandy and likely won’t have train service fully restored to pre-storm levels for months.

Executive director James Weinstein gave an update Wednesday at the agency’s monthly board meeting.

NJ Transit is operating 94 percent of its regular rail service, with the shortfall mainly due to electrical work at the Hoboken Terminal that has limited the amount of trains there.

Once full electric power is restored at Hoboken, likely at the end of next month, train service won’t go back to 100 percent. Weinstein says that’s because dozens of rail cars damaged by flooding are still undergoing repairs.

Many are multilevel cars that sustained extensive damage due to their lower carriage. They’re being repaired at a facility in upstate New York.
