Midtown Direct Resumes Regular Service Monday

Beginning Monday, Midtown Direct service is back to a regular schedule. NJT will operate nearly 90 percent of normal peak service.


Good news, commuters.

Three weeks after Hurricane Sandy, NJ Transit will restore weekday service to the Montclair-Boonton Line starting Monday. Midtown Direct service between Montclair State University and New York will operate on a regular schedule, which can be found here.

Service between Hackettstown and Hoboken on Monday will run on a modified schedule, which can be found here

Starting Monday, Eastbound service -- to Hoboken/New York -- will operate approximately once an hour until noon, and then there will be limited service to New York only.

Westbound service -- from New York/Hoboken -- will be available before 1 p.m. After that, westbound service will operate every 60 to 90 minutes.

According to the NJ Tranist website, commuters can still use the emergency bus shuttle service at Bay Street, Glen Ridge and Bloomfield stations.

In addition, normal weekend service will begin Saturday between Bay Street and Hoboken with connecting Midtown Direct service to/from New York. The weekend schedule can be found here. 

NJ Transit released a statement that read:

"... all but one NJ TRANSIT rail lines will be running full or modified service effective Monday, November 19.  This includes the restoration of service along the North Jersey Coast Line, which suffered the brunt of the damage wrought by Hurricane Sandy."  

Additionally, with the completion of repairs to a key Amtrak-owned electrical substation in Kearny that will generate additional power to the Northeast Corridor, NJ TRANSIT will be operating approximately 90 percent of its normal peak period service into New York Penn Station starting Monday morning.
