NEW YORK — Following a two-month repair project at Penn Station, regular service returned Tuesday for thousands of NJ Transit, Long Island Rail Road and Amtrak commuters, CBS New York reports.

For LIRR riders, that means an end to a 20% reduction in service while NJ TRANSIT commuters on the Morris and Essex lines will now no longer have to transfer to PATH trains at Hoboken.

Amtrak wrapped up the extensive summertime track repair project on Thursday, with commuters finding the so-called “summer of hell” to not be so bad after all. For the full story, click here.
