HOBOKEN, N.J. — New Jersey Transit will resume full service at Hoboken Terminal Monday, less than a month after a train crash into the station, leaving one dead and more than 100 injured.
Tracks 1 through 4, 7 and 8 will be open in the main terminal starting at 4 a.m., NJ Transit announced Friday afternoon. Partial service had already resumed earlier this week.
Tracks 5 and 6 will remain closed as construction crews continue to make repairs.
Commuters can look for Monday’s train schedule by 10 p.m. Saturday. The Ticket Office will also reopen in the terminal on Saturday.
As an added safety measure, all trains entering the Hoboken Terminal are required to decrease speed from 10 mph to 5 mph, NJ Transit said.
The new measure comes after a speeding NJ Transit train slammed through a bumper while entering the terminal, destroying the overhead canopy on Sept. 29. The falling debris killed one woman standing on the platform. More than 100 other people were injured.
Investigators later found the train had sped up to 21 mph — twice the speed limit — right before impact.
Just days after the crash, NJ Transit implemented a new rule that requires conductors to join engineers for the last portion of the trips where they guide the trains into Hoboken and Atlantic City terminals.
Commuters may still experience some delays Monday due to construction.AlertMe
