Continuing track maintenance on the Gladstone Branch this summer has required bus service replacing trains on weekdays between roughly 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.; riders should note that inbound buses leave 15–30 minutes earlier than the trains they replace, leading to longer journey times, which are longest for the most outlying stations. Outbound delays are less, up to about 17 minutes.
Riders should consult schedules and particularly note the location of bus stops, which in some cases are on adjacent streets and not at the rail station location.
The busing is scheduled to continue through August 12. The Lackawanna Coalition has expressed its disappointment that New Jersey Transit has not given notice of the outage before timetables were issued to the public.
