Penn Station repairs to impact local riders who board NJ Transit trains

FiOS1 News asks travelers on Pascack Valley line how they will deal with their future commutes

Share

NJ Transit commuters on the Pascack Valley line are bracing for extensive delays and cancellations. Amtrak is set to begin their eight-week long program of track repairs and maintenance on Monday, making already-frustrated travelers feel there is no hope in sight.

This week commuters were up against power outages, track issues, and on Thursday night, a train derailment on the NJ Transit line adding to what's being called the "summer of hell"

FiOS1 News traveled with some commuters leaving from the Nanuet train station heading to Penn Station.

"I usually go into Penn Station to get the NJ Transit that would come here. So, I’ll probably just take the bus, even though that's long too," said Rockland County resident Nicole Slark, who was heading into work Friday.

Amtrak's Penn Station track replacement project will close at least three tracks during weekdays.

The details for the summer train schedule that will last from July 10 to September 1 have been posted. New rail schedules are available at njtransit.com.
