NJ TRANSIT will begin restoring rail service that has been subject to temporary service adjustments in the second quarter of 2019, starting with the Atlantic City Rail Line (ACRL) and the Princeton Branch (Dinky).
The agency continues to address a continuing shortage of locomotive engineers, as well as equipment availability, as positive train control (PTC) installations, maintenance inspections, and testing continues. NJ TRANSIT will communicate updates as new information becomes available.
NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Kevin Corbett said the agency is focused on restoring consistent, dependable service.
“We recognize the impact that these service adjustments have had on our valued customers, particularly those who use our ACRL and Princeton Dinky services. Our goal is to begin restoring a service that remains reliable and predictable for customers as quickly as possible,” Corbett said. “I share our customers’ frustration and thank them for their continued patience during this time.”
