Downed power lines cause Amtrak, New Jersey Transit delays between NYC, Newark



NEW YORK (WABC) — Both Amtrak and New Jersey Transit trains were experiencing issues during rush hour on Wednesday evening.

Just after 5:30 p.m., Amtrak said all travel was temporarily stopped between Newark and New York Penn Station due to downed overhead power lines.

New Jersey Transit is also experiencing delays on several lines.

The Northeast Corridor line was suspended in both directions between Penn Station in New York and Metropark.

Crews are in the process of clearing tracks but Amtrak said they did not have an estimate on when service would resume.

All NJ Transit rail tickets and passes are being cross-honored by PATH at Newark Penn Station, Hoboken and 33rd Street New York.
