Rail Service

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), in cooperation with NJ TRANSIT and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANY), has developed a plan for expanded mass transit service for Pulaski Skyway northbound motorists during the deck replacement.

NJ TRANSIT service enhancements:
  • Morris & Essex (M&E) Lines
    NJ TRANSIT will add two train trips each morning and two train trips each evening on the M&E Lines between Summit and Hoboken Terminal. Two of the trains will operate during the peak periods, with the other two trains operating just outside of peak times, resulting in an additional 900 seats each morning and the same number each evening.

  • Raritan Valley Line
    NJ TRANSIT plans to add additional seating capacity on Raritan Valley Line trains operating to Newark Penn Station during the morning peak period (6 to 10 am) and from Newark Penn Station during the evening (4 to 8 pm) peak. This will add 1,260 seats during each period.

  • North Jersey Coast Line
    NJ TRANSIT will add a train trip to the morning peak period schedule from Bay Head to Hoboken and a train to the evening peak period schedule from Hoboken to Bay Head, accommodating an additional 460 passengers each way.

  • Increased PATH departures
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey plans to increase the frequency of PATH departures from Newark Penn Station to help accommodate additional NJ TRANSIT rail and bus customers.

    PATH service in Hoboken will be able to accommodate additional customers for trips to Jersey City and New York City.
