Port Jervis Line Schedule Adjustment Effective December 8, 2019

Metro-North Train

NJ Transit has advised Metro-North of a schedule adjustment effective Sunday, December 8, 2019, which will result in minor changes to the timings of several Port Jervis Line trains.

There are no changes to Pascack Valley Line trains.

The schedule adjustments are the result of the cab-signal installation on the Port Jervis Line in preparation for the implementation of Positive Train Control. The adjustments reflect the revised operating conditions and will provide more reliable service for our customers. For individual trip information, please consult the train schedule on our West of Hudson Schedules page.

On the Port Jervis Line:

Eastbound/ Inbound

  • Four eastbound weekday trains in the midday and evening will depart stations between 5 minutes earlier and 5 minutes later, and will have their trips lengthened by 3 to 5 minutes between Port Jervis and Suffern;
      • The 11:35 a.m. train from Port Jervis is diverted east of Suffern from the Main Line to the Bergen County Line between Ridgewood and Secaucus Junction because of train congestion on the Main Line.
  • Nine eastbound weekend/holiday trains depart stations between 7 minutes earlier and 5 minutes later and will have their schedules lengthened by 3-4 minutes between Port Jervis and Suffern.
  • Westbound/ Outbound

  • Five westbound weekday trains in the morning and early afternoon will depart stations between 4 minutes earlier and 5 minutes later, and will have their schedules lengthened by 3 - 5 minutes between Suffern and Port Jervis.

  • Eight westbound weekend/holiday trains depart stations between 6 minutes earlier and 10 minutes later and will have their schedules lengthened by 4 - 7 minutes between Suffern and Port Jervis.
