NJ Transit restores Raritan Valley Line direct service

October 18, 2019

 

New Jersey Transit will resume weekday off-peak, one-seat Raritan Valley Line (RVL) train service to New York Penn Station beginning Nov. 4, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced yesterday.

The commuter-rail service was suspended in September 2018 to allow NJ Transit to install positive train control equipment on its rail fleet, according to a press release issued by Murphy’s office.

Now — following the advancement of safety improvements and based on the increased availability of dual-mode locomotives — all five midday one-seat RVL round-trips and three evening trips will be restored. 

The final evening round trip, which departed Raritan, New Jersey, at 9:53 p.m. and departed New York at 12:08 a.m., will not be restored due to the need to inspect and prepare dual-powered trains for the next morning’s service, according to the press release.
