Why is my train operating with one less car than it normally has?

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.
