NEW YORK CITY – For a third straight day, New Jersey Transit service is significantly delayed into and out of New York Penn Station due to an Amtrak power problem, the agency said.

Service has resumed on the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast lines after being suspended Wednesday morning, NJ Transit said. Those lines are, however, experiencing delays between 60 and 90 minutes.

Midtown direct service is being diverted into Hoboken. NJ Transit rail tickets and passes are being cross-honored at Hoboken, Newark Penn and 33rd Street. NJT will cross honor with NJT Bus and private carriers.

Monday evening’s commute and Tuesday morning’s commute along New Jersey Transit was snarled due to problems with Amtrak’s overhead lines.
