More Rail Lines to Resume Monday, Says NJ Transit
New Jersey Transit officials say more rail lines will resume operations on Monday.
NJ Transit Executive Director James Weinstein says a portion of the North Jersey Coastline as well as rail service from northern and western suburbs will resume Monday on a limited basis.
Rail facilities and tracks suffered extensive damage from Monday’s storm.
Trains originating in Bergen County that normally run to Hoboken will run to Secaucus Junction instead, where passengers can pick up Northeast Corridor trains into New York.
Weinstein also says the federal government is providing 200 buses that will be used between suburban points and lower Manhattan, as well as ferry terminals in the Hoboken area.
Weinstein estimated total damages at “tens of millions of dollars.”
