Regular train service is coming back to these NJ Transit lines

With Amtrak’s summer track repairs at New York Penn now complete, some 5,000 commuters will see their regularly scheduled trains restored next Monday.

On Sept. 9, eight peak-hour Montclair-Boonton trains that have been redirecting to Hoboken since June will begin running again to New York Penn Station, but two North Jersey Coast Line trains — one in the morning and one in the afternoon — will continue to dead end in Hoboken.

Morris & Essex midtown direct trains that had stops added at East Orange or removed from Newark Broad Street Station this summer will return to their normally scheduled stops.

NJ Transit did not indicate whether one-seat rides to New York Penn on the Raritan Valley Line during off-peak hours would be resuming. That service has been suspended for nearly a year.

Commuters who purchased discounted tickets and passes this summer will be able to use them until the end of September.

The following Montclair-Boonton Line trains will resume operation to/from New York Penn Station:

  • Train 6206 arriving NY Penn at 7:40 a.m.
  • Train 6210 arriving NY Penn at 8:20 a.m.
  • Train 6214 arriving NY Penn at 8:59 a.m.
  • Train 6216 arriving NY Penn at 9:50 a.m.
  • Train 6263 departing NY Penn at 4:50 p.m.
  • Train 6273 departing NY Penn at 5:31 p.m.
  • Train 6279 departing NY Penn at 6:10 p.m.
  • Train 6283 departing NY Penn at 6:41 p.m.

North Jersey Coast Line train 2602 in the morning and train 2611 in the afternoon will continue to operate in/out of Hoboken.
