Free shuttle bus service will be provided to minimize impact on travelers

Beginning Saturday, October 15 until Sunday, October 16, AirTrain Newark will have a full shutdown for scheduled maintenance. Starting from 10 p.m. Saturday until 7 a.m. Sunday there will be no AirTrain Newark service, but the Port Authority will provide free shuttle service to Newark Airport.

Shuttle buses will be available between Newark Airport Station (Rail Link), Terminals A, B and C, and Stations P2, P3 and P4 (the parking lot/rental car stations). The AirTrain maintenance work will have no impact on Amtrak and NJ Transit service.
