Expect major train delays in and out of NYC this weekend

New Jersey Transit officials say that trains in and out New York this weekend, April 29 and April 30, will be delayed about a half hour due to Amtrak track maintenance, track inspection and speed restrictions. Passengers should allow for extra travel time.

On Saturday and Sunday, NJ Transit rail tickets and passes will be cross-honored on NJ Transit bus and light rail. Private carriers and PATH at Newark Penn Station, New York-33rd Street and Hoboken will also honor NJ Transit rail tickets, officials said.

Commuters have faced major delays for the last several weeks due to infrastructure issues, including track maintenance problems. Two trains were derailed, causing train travel shut downs of several hours in and out of New York.
