For those Metro-North Railroad customers who ride the Pascack Valley Line, please be aware that buses will replace some trains during midday hours during the week & all weekend from June 4th until June 26th. Here are the complete details:
Beginning Saturday, June 4 and continuing through Sunday, June 26, buses will replace Pascack Valley Line trains between Spring Valley and Secaucus Junction on weekdays from approximately 8:45 AM until 3:30 PM and each weekend beginning with the 12:45 AM Hoboken departure Friday night/early Saturday and continuing through the 12:45 AM Hoboken departure Sunday night/early Monday.
During this 22-day period, NJ TRANSIT personnel will upgrade several grade crossings and perform maintenance.
Buses will operate between Spring Valley and Secaucus Junction, where connecting rail service to/from New York and Hoboken will be available.
Buses will operate in local and express segments (except the 12:45 a.m. departure on weekends, which will be served by one bus making all stops).
On Saturdays and Sundays while busing is in effect, all Metro-North customers from Spring Valley, Nanuet and Pearl River may use their monthly/weekly commutation passes for travel on Metro-North’s Hudson Line between Tarrytown and Grand Central Terminal.
IMPORTANT: Certain Secaucus-bound buses may operate up to 10 minutes earlier than scheduled train departure times on Saturday and Sunday mornings. See bus schedule below for details.
Every effort will be made to maintain train connections at Secaucus, but they cannot be guaranteed.
Customers should allow an additional 30-60 minutes travel time.
Customers traveling locally between outlying stations on the Pascack Valley Line may need to travel to Secaucus and then transfer to an outbound bus to reach their destination. There will be no direct connection between the different bus segments.
To avoid delays, Pascack Valley Line customers may wish to travel via the Main/Bergen County Line.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.
