Gas leak disrupts NJ Transit, Amtrak service

NEW JERSEY — NJ Transit and Amtrak service was disrupted Tuesday due to a gas leak.

A gas leak near Rahway caused NJ Coast Line service to be suspended between Woodbridge and Newark Penn Station in both directions, and Northeast Corridor service to be suspended between Metropark and Rahway, NJ Transit tweeted at 8:48 a.m.

At the time, NJ Transit bus and private carriers accepted NJ Transit rail tickets and passes.

Amtrak service was also disrupted, with trains operating between New York Penn Station and Philadelphia being held.

The gas leak was contained, and NJ Transit and Amtrak reported lines were again operating by 11:30 a.m.

Residual delays are expected.
