Commuters woke up this morning to light rail delays after a dump truck on Marin Boulevard struck catenary wires last night. It was reported that passengers waited upward to an hour for their morning train.
Daniel Guiducci, a long time light rail commuter, says “It took me an hour and half to get home yesterday and an hour and half to get to work today.”
According to the NJ Transit Hudson-Bergen Light Rail twitter page @NJTRANSIT_HBLR, trains are continuing to run on a modified weekend schedule with service every 30 minutes until further notice as crews continue to repair damage to overhead power lines in Jersey City.
“We had to get off at Harsimus Cove and get on the shuttle bus. When I got off at my stop there were no shuttle buses but 200 people waiting around.“ says Guiducci.
NJT and private carrier busses will cross honor Light Rail tickets and passes, and PATH will cross honor Light Rail tickets and passes between Exchange Place and Hoboken stations.
