Shuttle bus service will be provided to minimize impact on travelers

Beginning at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, October 5 through 12 p.m. Sunday, October 6, the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) rail link station will be closed for required maintenance on the station’s electrical system. Shuttle bus service between Newark Penn Station and EWR will be provided to ensure continued service between the airport and regional rail connections.

During this time, there will be no AirTrain service between Station P4 and the rail link station. Amtrak and NJ Transit trains traveling in both directions will bypass the station. Normal AirTrain service will continue to operate between P2 and P4 throughout the shutdown period.

At Newark Penn Station, shuttle buses will pick up passengers connecting to EWR at the main entrance on Raymond Plaza West and drop them off in front of Terminal A, B and C, as well as the P4 station. Passengers picking up rental cars should disembark the bus at Terminal A and take AirTrain to the P2 or P3 Stations.

At the airport, shuttle buses will pick up passengers connecting to Newark Penn Station at P4. Rail tickets or valid monthly passes between EWR and the passenger’s origin or destination station will still be required for travel on Amtrak and NJ Transit trains, or to connect with shuttle bus service at Newark Penn Station.

Port Authority staff and customer service agents will be on hand to direct passengers and to work with NJ Transit and Amtrak staff at Newark Penn Station to assist with passenger transfers. NJT pick-up/drop-off locations to and from the airport are posted on its website (here).

Travelers and employees are encouraged to leave extra travel time and check for updates and alerts about the AirTrain EWR and other Port Authority airport travel advisories on the airport’s website (here) or call (888) EWR-INFO (397-4636).
