Hurricane Sandy landed hard on our Midtown direct rail system and really all of the transportation lines on the eastern seaboard, but dedicated transit employees are hard at work to get things back on track. Announcements concerning our NJ Midtown direct towns and transit options appear to be in the works, allowing for some travel from your Summit NJ home or home in Millburn/Short Hills and surrounding areas.
Today NJ Transit resumed rail service between Trenton and New York Penn Station on the Northeast Corridor Line using this special schedule. Service for the other rail lines has not resumed because of damage from Hurricane Sandy and resulting outages in power. Most of the bus lines and the River Line light rail are providing transportation options too.
Summit, Chatham and Millburn/Shorthills home owners and residents should also be aware that rail passes will be cross honored on NJ Transit and buses and that passes expiring in October will be honored until November 7th to aid residents, according to the transit website. Please visit NJ Transit to get details and view actual schedules.
