NJ TRANSIT made the decision to divert Morris & Essex Line
customers to Hoboken for a number of reasons:

To explain the process of how our planners developed the temporary summer schedule, imagine four lanes of traffic on a busy highway that all had to exit onto one lane to accommodate traffic in both directions. The delays would be insurmountable.

That’s what would have happened if we diverted Northeast Corridor trains into Hoboken.

Due to the track configuration off of the busy Northeast Corridor to Hoboken – there is only ONE lane for traffic in and out.
