While no delays were reported Monday morning, NJ Transit tickets will be cross-honored after last week’s power problems along the Northeast Corridor.
NJT buses and private carriers, such as DeCamp, will cross-honor NJT rail tickets. PATH will cross-honor tickets at 33rd Street, Hoboken Terminal and Newark Penn Station, and New York Waterway will cross-honor tickets at South Ferry in Hoboken.
“We want to give our customers the flexibility and comfort if they want to time their commute in the way which serves them best,” NJ Transit spokeswoman Nancy Snyder said.
Snyder said commuters won’t see the same delays they did last week.
Power problems caused delays for Amtrak trains running between Washington, D.C. and Boston and for commuter lines into New York City on Friday, leaving thousands of riders livid and transit officials apologizing for the fourth such problem in a week.
Friday's rail power issue added to a summer that has seen delays of a half hour or more for New Jersey Transit riders, about once every three working days, according to a review of the agency's messages to commuters.
Amtrak was restricted to operating three trains at a time through the Hudson River Tunnel into New York City Friday morning, spokesman Craig Schultz said in an email.
On Wednesday, Amtrak power problems delayed thousands of commuters from getting to and from New York City. NJ Transit was forced to suspend service in and out of the city and the agency apologized on Twitter to riders, saying the "quality of the commute last few days has been unacceptable, we share your frustration." The transit agency said it had "contacted Amtrak at highest levels seeking solution."
