NJ Transit Announces Schedule Changes for the Summer Months; Here’s How Bloomfield Commuters Will Be

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- NJ Transit has announced repair work for the summer that will divert Bloomfield commuters’ routes temporarily, with the goal of totally renewing two tracks in New York Penn Station (NYPS). The repair work, which will be performed by Amtrak--which owns the tracks-- will last from June 17-September 6.

This work will divert Midtown Direct rail service on the Montclair-Boonton Line to Hoboken. The peak-hour MOBO 6206 train, MOBO 6210, MOBO 6214 and MOBO 6216, which now arrive at PSNY at 7:40am, 8:20am, 8:59am and 9:50am, respectively, will now be diverted to Hoboken during the summer, arriving approximately 10 minutes earlier than they would in New York.

Returning home, peak-hour commuters on the MOBO 6263, MOBO 6273, MOBO 6279 and MOBO 6283 will now leave Hoboken at 4:54pm, 5:36pm, 6:22pm and 6:47pm. NJ Transit buses will be cross honoring passes. Rush-hour trains will not be stopping at Newark Broad Street.

“NJ Transit informed us of these planned service changes at a meeting last week. While we know any service changes can cause temporary inconvenience to our sizable commuter population, we have been assured these track repairs will make the rail system more reliable moving forward, and we are very hopeful that NJ Transit will finish this work ahead of time,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “The existing New York Penn Station needs repairs and a brand new tunnel to accommodate the huge population of skilled commuters from New Jersey, upon whom the regional economy heavily relies. I will continue to push for the federal government to fully fund the Gateway project and make long-term fixes to this vital part of our community.”

Mayor Venezia, Township Administrator Matthew Watkins and Bloomfield Township department heads will look to expand shuttle bus schedules and parking availability to help commuters during planned service changes. These repairs are part of NJ Transit’s ongoing safety and reliability upgrades. All upcoming service changes will all be posted to njtransit.com/inform, and @NJTRANSIT on Twitter.
