SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – The resumption of limited NJ Transit train service in South Orange saw commuters struggling with late trains and slippery track conditions on Monday.
A disabled train near Morris Plains forced a temporary suspension of service, but by 6:10 a.m., the train had been removed. The Millburn and Short Hills stations were being bypassed due to slippery track conditions.
Late Sunday night, NJ Transit announced that Morris & Essex line trains, along with the Midtown Direct service, would run on a limited schedule.
In a news release on the NJ Transit website, Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chairman James Simpson said, “Even with this news, service into New York Penn remains extremely limited.”
The Monday commute also was hampered by a bus accident at the Lincoln Tunnel Monday morning snarled traffic, causing 60- to 90-minute delays in bus service, according to NJ Transit.
