03-Apr 2017 NJT NYP derailment (info and workarounds)

April 3rd, 2017  |  Published in admin, alternatives

UPDATED after the 4-April PM commute (see NEW below)

NEW: NJT Press release re: extra trains and new ferry service

It’s going to be tough sledding for a while…

The best sources of official info are

  1. www.njtransit.com –  The actual URL for the details may change. So just go there and look for the big message front-and-center on that page.
  2. NJ Transit’s Twiter feed – https://twitter.com/njtransit.
    You do NOT need a Twitter account to go to that site on any browser.
The schedule details vary by line. Read the NJT site to see what will be available to you. 

One constant: Cross honoring remains in effect with NJ TRANSIT bus, private carrier bus, NY Waterway ferry, and PATH at Newark, Hoboken and 33rd Street.

NEW: A list of ways to travel between Manhattan and Hoboken

NEW: A link to the NJT App
