Today’s The Day: Summer of Hell Begins Today For NJ Transit Commuters


Nj TransitIt’s the Morris and Essex Line that bears the brunt of NJ Transit’s Summer of Hell disruptions (starting today through Friday, September 1, to repair tracks), but savvy Montclair commuters should expect delays and disruptions as a result:

Midtown Direct trains on the Montclair-Boonton Line will operate on regular weekday schedules with minor time changes to/from PSNY. Montclair-Boonton Line Midtown Direct trains will not stop at Broad Street Station during peak hours. Note: All Montclair-Boonton Line customers should check the schedules as station stops may have changed.

NJ Transit has a page that explain options to commuters. South Orange Village Vice President decided to soften the blow to her constituents by hosting a Commuter Send-Off Party.

  1. This morning wasn’t so bad. The train actually arrived into PSNY on time. Lets see what this evening brings. I am wondering, as part of a PR stunt, Amtrak didn’t actually start work this morning and the real delays are yet to come.
