NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Transit will add more bus service to accommodate commuters during major track work at New York’s Penn Station.

Beginning next Thursday, commuters can take express buses to Manhattan from the Morristown and Madison train stations.

NJ Transit also is adding two express buses from the Summit and Maplewood train stations.

The additional bus service will operate during the morning commute only.

Trains from those areas are being diverted to Hoboken to accommodate the Penn Station repairs.

Executive Director Steve Santoro says the expanded bus service is in response to commuting patterns since the repairs started this month.

NJ Transit also is discontinuing a 6 a.m. bus from South Orange and 6 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. buses from Newark’s Broad Street station due to low ridership.
