Additional Trains Added to Modified Weekday Service on M&E; Gladstone Branch Restored to Hoboken and New York on Modified Schedule
March 16, 2022
NEWARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT crews continue to successfully make repairs in the Maplewood area to allow additional trains to operate on the Morris & Essex Line (M&E) and Gladstone Branch. Beginning Thursday, March 17, the M&E and Gladstone Branch will have enhancements made to the modified weekday schedules providing customers with additional trains and direct service to New York and Hoboken on the Gladstone Branch. Customers are advised to reference the modified schedules to take advantage of the additional trains and to get specific departure times for their trip. Strong storm winds on March 7th took down a large tree in Maplewood, resulting in extensive damage to the overhead wires and the steel structure that supports the wires. Please see below for service information.
Cross-honoring will remain in effect for Morris & Essex (M&E) and Gladstone Branch customers on the Raritan Valley and Montclair-Boonton Lines as well as NJ TRANSIT & private carrier buses.
All M&E customers should continue to allow for extra travel time and are strongly encouraged to customize their service alerts on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app to receive updates via push notifications, monitor MyTransit Alerts, the M&E Twitter feed @NJTRANSIT_ME and njtransit.com/MorrisEssexUpdate for the latest service information.
