Earlier this afternoon, the MTA announced that buses will replace off-peak midday trains on the Pascack Valley Line. Here are the complete details:
From July 13 through September 6, NJ TRANSIT workers will replace rail ties and perform other repair and upgrading work along the length of the Pascack Valley Line and will rebuild railroad crossings in Westwood and Hackensack.
To accommodate that work, on weekdays, buses will operate in lieu of off-peak mid-day trains (from approximately 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) between Spring Valley and Secaucus Junction, from Monday, July 15 to Friday, September 6. On Saturdays and Sundays, buses will operate all day between Spring Valley and Secaucus Junction, from Saturday, July 13 to Sunday, August 11.
Customers should allow an additional 30 to 60 minutes of travel time.
On weekends, customers with monthly or weekly passes between Spring Valley, Nanuet or Pearl River and Hoboken or Penn Station may use their pass to ride Hudson Line trains between Tarrytown and Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan.
