PM Outbound from Hoboken

The 7:20 PM express from Hoboken and 7:09 PM from New York-Penn arriving Spring Valley at 8:14 PM will not operate. As an alternative, customers may wish to take:

On Fridays, the 2:58 PM from Hoboken (2:51 PM from New York-Penn Station), which operates Fridays and holiday eves, will now only operate on Federal holiday getaway days (July 3, August 31, November 21 and December 21).

For the duration of the NJT service reductions, Metro-North will cross-honor Pascack Valley Line tickets on all three East of Hudson lines, on the Port Jervis Line, and on the Haverstraw-Ossining ferry. Pascack Valley Line tickets will also be crossed-honored on the TAPPAN ZEExpress (TZx) bus service.
