NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey Transit service has resumed following police and fire department activity at the Newark Penn Station late Thursday morning.
According to NYC Emergency Management on Twitter, a “smoke condition” at the Newark station was the cause of the service disruptions for both NJ Transit and Amtrak trains in both directions between New York and New Jersey.
NJ Transit alerted travelers experienced delays up to 45 minutes for rail service in and out of Penn Station New York. Additionally, all trains were bypassing Newark Penn Station.
Service has since been restored and operating on or close to schedule.
