NJ Transit suffers setback; Trenton to NYC does resume

    New Jersey Transit planned to resume rail service on four of its lines starting this morning, but power failures have forced them only to resume one.

    Trains are running on NJ Transit’s Northeast Corridor between Trenton and New York City. Plans to resume North Jersey Coast and Raritan and Main line service were scrapped after a backup generator failed.


    NJ Transit resumed full or partial service on 80 percent of its bus routes on Thursday, and light rail vehicles also began running from the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden to the Trenton Transit Center.

    UPDATE: A previous version of this story indicated that North Jersey Coast, Raritan and Main line service had been restored.
