NJ Transit is calling out Amtrak due to construction projects that will likely cause delays on all lines.
"NJ Transit rail customers have been forced to deal with delays, derailments and unreliable service because Amtrak, which owns the tracks our service relies upon, has neglected the maintenance of its critical infrastructure for years," NJ Transit said in a statement announcing the delays and schedule changes.
The following weekday rail service plan will be in place continuously from July 10th through September 1st:
- Midtown Direct trains on the Morristown Line will be diverted to Hoboken.
- Midtown Direct trains on the Gladstone Branch will be diverted to Hoboken.
- All Midtown Direct trains on the Montclair-Boonton Line will operate on regular weekday schedules with minor time changes to/from PSNY.
- All Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains will operate on regular weekday schedules with minor time changes to/from PSNY.
- Raritan Valley Line will operate on regular weekday schedules with adjustments to PSNY schedules.
- Main/Bergen, Pascack Valley and Port Jervis Lines will operate on regular weekday schedules however customers may need to adjust their connections to New York at Secaucus.
NJ TRANSIT’s regular weekend service will remain in effect through the summer Amtrak Track Repair Work.
