You have several options. Pick the one that best suits your travel needs:

  1. Ride the rerouted trains to/from HOB.
    • Purchase a discounted M&E HOB pass or ticket, which will be cross-honored on the bus. Discounted HOB passes and tickets must be purchased at an NJ TRANSIT rail station, Ticket Vending Machine or through the MyTix feature on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app.
    • PATH will cross honor at HOB, 33rd Street and the World Trade Center. NY Waterway will cross honor at HOB, W.39th Street, World Financial Center and Pier 11 ferry terminals.
  2. Ride the M&E to Newark Broad Street, connect to Newark Light Rail to reach Newark Penn Station, then connect to a PSNY-bound train from there.
    • Purchase a regular M&E PSNY pass or ticket to make this journey.
    • Your PSNY pass or ticket may also be used on rerouted HOB service.
  1. Use another NJ TRANSIT rail line to/from PSNY.

Take advantage of the cross-honoring option being offered.  Buy a discounted M&E HOB pass or ticket, and it will be cross-honored on the bus.

Purchasing a PSNY pass or ticket from Summit would give you the most flexibility.  It would be accepted on rerouted HOB trains, on the Newark Light Rail connecting option, as well as on the other rail lines as you have been doing.

Discounted July M&E HOB passes will be accepted to PSNY July 1-9.  Also discounted August M&E HOB passes will be accepted to HOB on September 1.

One option would be to take the Midtown Direct train to/from PSNY on Sunday as you have in the past. Then, Monday-Thursday, take the rerouted HOB train and connect at HOB to PATH to reach 33rd Street station. Your discounted M&E HOB pass will cover both routes. If you are traveling using a one way, round-trip or 10 trip tickets, you will buy a PSNY ticket for Sunday and discounted M&E HOB tickets for Monday-Thursday. Early morning Midtown Direct service to PSNY might also be an option for the weekdays.

Discounted M&E HOB passes and tickets are not accepted on other NJ TRANSIT rail lines.

NJ TRANSIT monthly passes will only be cross-honored on NY Waterway ferries at Hoboken Terminal.

The NY Waterway ferry service between Hoboken and W. 39th St. will only operate between 7:00-10:00 a.m. and 4:00-8:00 p.m. Customers traveling at different times will be able to access NY Waterway regular ferry service to/from Pier 11/Wall Street or the World Financial Center or they can use PATH.

NJ TRANSIT will have additional buses on standby to provide supplemental service from South Orange Station, and express to PABT should overcrowding arise on the 107 bus route. The HOB ticket will be cross-honored on buses traveling from South Orange Station to PABT.

 

NJ TRANSIT is and will continue to be engaged in a very active customer communication effort on both traditional and new media platforms and our website. Examples of ways we will communicate include using Twitter, Facebook, the dedicated marquee on our website, My Transit Alerts, text and email to a customer’s cell phone, radio and television outlets, and on public announcement systems.

 

For trains continuing to operate to Penn Station, we had to reduce the consists of select trains in order to have trains fit on the remaining available tracks. All of the tracks being taken out of service are longer tracks. Five of the tracks remaining in service at PSNY are tracks that are not long enough to hold our longer trains. A number of trains that normally operate with 10 cars and a locomotive will now operate with only 9 cars.

For trains diverted to Hoboken, we have reduced the number of cars on select trains as the tracks in Hoboken are shorter than tracks in New York. There are a number of regularly scheduled M&E trains to Hoboken that will operate with increased seating. We do expect that many M&E customers will change their travel times and patterns for the summer due to the change in travel options.

With the changes in service options, we are anticipating that many customers will change travel patterns. We have adjusted the stopping patterns of select trains to prepare for those different choices and to attempt to match seats to projected ridership.

With all of the M&E trains diverted to Hoboken, There is not enough room in Hoboken to continue to run the NJCL trains to that terminal. Customers on the RVL, NEC and NJCL who wish to travel to Hoboken may use their normal Hoboken ticket for travel through Secaucus Junction to Hoboken. Please see a fare gate attendant in Secaucus to pass through the fare gate.

Regular weekday schedules will be in effect with minor adjustments.

The ‘Broad Street Extension’ offers a connection between Broad Street Station and Newark Penn Station. Once there, customers can board Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line trains to Penn Station New York – as well as PATH trains traveling into New York City.

The service will operate every 10 minutes in each direction during the busy parts of the day, from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Outside of the peak periods, trains operate every 30 minutes.

 

You can board the Broad Street Extension trains at street level, outside the main entrance at Newark’s Broad Street Station, or at Newark Penn Station, on Platform 2 of the lower level.

You can use your valid NJ TRANSIT monthly or weekly rail pass (imprinted with a zone number) to ride on Newark Light Rail’s Broad Street Extension at no additional charge.

 

Tickets are sold at Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) located at Newark Penn Station and at the main entrance of the Newark Broad Street Station. The adult one-way fare is $1.60.

Each daily ticket needs to be validated (time-stamped) just before your trip using machines located near the TVMs. Once onboard, you may be asked to show your ticket to fare inspectors making random inspections.

Yes. In addition to Morris & Essex Lines passes and tickets, Montclair-Boonton, Main/Bergen County, Pascack Valley and North Jersey Coast lines passes and tickets with Hoboken as the final destination will be accepted for travel on weekdays only on NY Waterway Ferry, PATH, and the 126 Bus Line services at Hoboken Terminal to/from NY from July 10 to September 1.
