All New Jersey Transit's Morris & Essex Midtown Direct trains to Penn Station will be canceled during the six-week overhaul at Penn Station this summer, Gov. Chris Christie announced Tuesday. The Morris & Essex Line's Midtown Direct trains will end in Hoboken, and from there, PATH trains and ferries will honor NJ Transit fares on that line. It's the only line that will be affected during the work in July and August, Christie said at a news conference Tuesday. NJ Transit riders on other lines won't be cross-honored on the PATH or ferry. Morris & Essex riders will get a discount of 56 to 63 percent during the work -- so a monthly pass from Gladstone to New York City, for example, would drop from $451 to $168, and still include the free ferry and PATH transfers.

Sounds like a pretty good deal. $72 from East Orange to either Downtown or Midtown via the PATH train and/or ferries. And $168 from all the way out at Gladstone.
