NJ Transit is adding a new express train to New York along the North Jersey Coast line next week, according to an agency news release.
The new run will leave Long Branch at 6:30a and stop in Little Silver, Red Bank, Middletown, Hazlet, Aberdeen-Matawan and Woodbridge before arriving in New York at 7:51a.
A local from South Amboy is also being added to the coast line.
The new runs are part of an effort to add 4,000 rush-hour seats across the NJ Transit train system. The changes become effective Sunday.
Departure times for other trains have been adjusted because of the additions, so riders should check the new schedules.
Earlier this month, NJ Transit said it would begin introducing a fleet of 234 multi-level cars on rail lines in December, gradually replacing single-level cars on the busiest lines, including the North Jersey Coast Line.
