Service returning to Hoboken Terminal, NJ Transit says


Electric-powered trains will resume service to New Jersey Transit's Hoboken Terminal on March 24, agency officials announced yesterday.

The service resumption will mark the end of post-Hurricane Sandy interim rail schedules and reflect many improvements made possible by the restoration of a key power substation, NJ Transit officials said in a prepared statement.

"Starting March 24, we will be adding 21 additional trains to the current schedules, which will restore nearly all rush-hour service to Hoboken and result in the long-awaited return of standard one-seat service to Hoboken for Gladstone customers," said Executive Director James Weinstein.

The additional trains will be running on the Morris & Essex, Montclair-Boonton, and Main/Bergen County lines.

In addition, NJ Transit will restore 19 trains that have been operating partial-length trips.

With the March 24 schedule change, NJ Transit's rail division will reach 97 percent of its pre-Sandy service levels.
