Rail commuters face another round of Penn Station repairs
Jan. 08, 2018
NEW YORK (AP) — A second round of track repairs at New York's Penn Station will cause some service changes.
Beginning Monday, New Jersey Transit will terminate and originate one morning and one evening train at Hoboken and one in each period at Newark Penn Station. One evening outbound train will be cancelled.
The Long Island Rail Road says it will reroute five morning and three evening trains to accommodate the work. To compensate, the LIRR will add two post-rush hour trains in the morning and three in the evening.
Amtrak also is making changes including cancelling two trains between New York and Washington D.C.
The disruptions won't be as significant as during last year's so-called "Summer of Hell," but will last until late May.
