But delays of 45 minutes to an hour still are possible, according to the agency.

Amtrak reported a low-voltage condition on the Northeast Corridor around 8 a.m. that resulted in disruption of service on the Midtown Direct, North Jersey Coast and Raritan Valley lines, as well as on Northeast Corridor travel.

Trains on the Midtown Direct line, which services Greater Morristown, had been diverted to the Hoboken terminal.

To give customers alternate travel options, NJ Transit…

has established cross-honoring with PATH trains for customers boarding at 33rd Street in New York, Newark Penn Station and Hoboken Terminal.  In addition NJ TRANSIT buses and private carrier buses are cross honoring rail tickets and passes.
