NJ Transit resumes some Hoboken service Monday
NJ Transit will resume some service in and out of Hoboken terminal on Monday.
"When the partial reopening occurs, Main/Bergen County, Pascack Valley and Port Jervis Line trains will return to a weekday schedule, with some adjustments, to and from Hoboken. Select express trains will be eliminated and certain other trains will be combined," the agency said Friday.
Tracks 10 to 17 will be open while the area near Tracks 1 to 9 still need to be repaired for "extensive damage."
Most Gladstone Branch line service into Hoboken will be restored along with Montclair-Boonton Line trains originating west of Montclair State University (including from Denville), with additional stops east of MSU.
An updated schedule will be available after 10 p.m Friday.
Some of the alternative service put into place following the fatal crash on Oct. 6 will remain in place as North Jersey Coast Line and Raritan Valley Line trains scheduled to terminate in Hoboken will continue to end at Newark Penn Station. Cross-honoring will continue on Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, NJ Transit bus and private carriers only.
In the terminal itself, customer service offices and restrooms will be open. There will be limited ticket vending machines located in the waiting room. Areas of the terminal will remain closed as repair work continues on the 109-year-old terminal.
NJ Transit said that commuters should continue to expect crowding and delays on trains, buses and light rail cars.
