NEWARK, N.J. — Some commuters will be riding buses to get to work Friday after a train crash at the Hoboken, New Jersey, terminal. Officials are assessing the extent of damage to the terminal.
New Jersey Transit’s rail service is suspended in and out of Hoboken, but the agency is expanding bus, rail and light rail service.
All New York-bound trains on Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast and MidTown Direct lines will run on normal weekday schedules.
The Main, Bergen and Pascack Valley lines will operate on a weekend schedule, originating and terminating in Secaucus.
The 126 bus line will operate between Hoboken and the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City. There also will be buses operating on a load-and-go basis between Hoboken and Secaucus.
All other NJ Transit trains are operating regularly. Commuters could face overcrowding and delays.
PATH train service to Hoboken from 33rd Street and the World Trade Center stations in New York City resumed Thursday afternoon. Service from Hoboken remains suspended until further notice.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is planning to run buses along the Pascack Valley and Port Jervis lines between the Tarrytown and Beacon stations.
The Pascack Valley train that crashed into the terminal originated from Spring Valley, New York.
Metro-North will provide alternate bus service during peak rush hour Thursday for Pascack Valley and Port Jervis line customers.
