NJ Transit restores full service at Hoboken Terminal

- New Jersey Transit restored full train service into and out of Hoboken Terminal on Monday, October 17 at 4:00 a.m. following a deadly crash last month.

Six more tracks were opened along with the station's ticket office. However, tracks five and six will remain closed as NJ Transit continues repairs.

Trains entering the station will now reduce their approach speed from 10 mph to 5 mph for added safety.

In the Sept. 29 crash, the train's data recorder showed it going twice the 10 mph speed limit just before the crash, which remains under investigation..

NJ Transit officials say approximately 250 passengers were on board the train.

The train's engineer hit the emergency brake less than a second before impact.
