NJ TRANSIT back on schedule after brush fires caused standstill
Commuters who rely on NJ TRANSIT were hit with major disruptions on Wednesday evening due to brush fires in Edison and New Brunswick.
A freight train hauling garbage caught fire, and sparks from the train caused brush fires near the tracks.
The incident resulted in delays and cancellations, leaving many commuters waiting for hours.
The chaos continued into the night, with Amtrak service suspended between Philadelphia and Penn Station until late.
However, there is good news for commuters on Thursday morning.
According to CBS2’s Zinnia Maldonado, NJ TRANSIT is back on schedule after last night’s delays added hours to the afternoon commute.
The Northeast Corridor rail line service is operating on or close to schedule between Trenton and Penn Station.
The trains at Metro Park Station are all set to leave on time.
While Amtrak has tweeted out that there could still be delays throughout the area, normal service has been restored for NJ TRANSIT.
Rail tickets and passes are no longer being restricted, and commuters can expect a smoother ride on their way to work.
