Temporary Pascack Valley Line Service Reductions Starting June 4 Accommodate NJ TRANSIT Installation of Positive Train Control Equipment
While NJ TRANSIT continues to install Positive Train Control (PTC) equipment on its rail fleet, adjustments to the Pascack Valley Line's weekday schedule are needed to allow for hardware components to be installed on locomotives and cab cars.
These adjustments, effective Monday, June 4, include:
AM Inbound from Spring Valley
The 7:59 AM express from Spring Valley, arriving Hoboken at 8:56 AM and Penn Station at 9:06 AM, will not operate. As an alternative, customers may wish to take:
- The 7:37 local from Spring Valley, arriving Hoboken at 8:50 AM and New York-Penn at 9:06 AM, the same time as the cancelled 7:59 AM train.
- The 8:08 AM local from Spring Valley will depart five minutes earlier, at 8:03 AM, and will not stop at four stations in New Jersey, reducing the overall travel time on this train. It will arrive Hoboken at 9:09 AM and New York-Penn at 9:22 AM.
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:
- The 6:48 PM local from Hoboken (6:41 PM from New York-Penn Station) arriving Spring Valley at 8:03 PM.
- The 7:29 PM local (7:20 PM from New York-Penn Station), arriving Spring Valley at 8:40 PM.
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.
