Beginning Monday NJ Transit will finally restore service to all of its rail lines for the first time since Sandy hit.
The Gladstone branch of the Morris and Essex Lines will begin running on a limited schedule. This will come as a relief to not just the 32 hundred commuters who use this branch on a daily basis but all those who use the Morris and Essex lines who will benefit from the extra trains that will now be back in service. John Durso, a spokesman for NJ Transit says restoring service to the line involved a number of challenges.
“We do have a number a trains that will be coming back that will not only help transport our customers in the Gladstone branch, but will also assist in transporting customers along the Morris and Essex lines, so this will increase capacity, it will result in more trains rolling, and it will keep our customers further on the move as we continue into this post Sandy recovery.”
The line will be operating between Gladstone and Hoboken as well as Gladstone and New York City.
