After the Hoboken train crash, which took place on a crowded Thursday morning, the entire terminal in New Jersey is crippled.
The terminal is regularly used by sixty thousand people. Nearly a dozen commuter rail and rapid-transit lines meet up at Hoboken, and due to the train crash, all of them have been affected.
According to the New York Times, there is no train service right now. Light-rail, bus or ferry services into or out of Hoboken Terminal have also stopped. However, PATH service has been restarted into and out of Hoboken.
Even the bus guide is not showing anything conclusive. There is no comprehensive guide to private bus service in New Jersey. The guide only shows Transit buses but not private ones. Delay and congestion have taken over the sector due to the Hoboken train crash.
“We’ve been tested over again, with strikes and storms and snow, and we are like ants marching,” Josh Crandall, founder of Clever Commute, said.
“We just find a way.”
To go in and out of Hoboken, there is the New Jersey Transit 126 bus. They are currently running extra service, but it starts and ends at Hoboken City Hall instead of Hoboken Terminal. The PATH is working for both directions.
In case of those who travel by train from Hoboken, one can use PATH to Pennsylvania Station in New York then take a New Jersey Transit train to Secaucus Junction instead. One can also travel in a free shuttle bus from Hoboken to Secaucus; however, capacity will be limited.
To travel to and fro Hudson County South of Hoboken, one can use the PATH to Newport and catch the light rail. The New York Waterway ferry is another option from the World Financial Center, Wall Street, or West 39th Street to Paulus Hook in Jersey City and catch the light rail at the Essex Street station.
Uber is giving away free UberPool rides until 8 p.m. to much of the northern Hudson County.
