A defect was found in one of the DMU’s that operate on the RiverLine and as a result, all but 4 cars were taken out of service for an emergency inspection.
NJ Transit will operate alternate express bus service to the line during the day to supplement the 4 cars that are in service. These buses will only stop at Trenton Transit Center, Florence, Beverly/Edgewater Park, and Walter Rand Transportation Center.
NJ Transit also will cross-honor RiverLine tickets on local lines for alternate service to other stations. For a full listing of which routes serve which stations, see the below link.
No word on what the actual defect was as of yet, but stay tuned…
Update 2:20pm EST
Accordingly, the defect was found in the wheels. Still no word on WHAT was found, but simply that they did not meet safety standards.
