The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced it will suspend AirTrain Newark monorail service at Newark Liberty International Airport for approximately 75 days beginning May 1 in order to perform track maintenance and repairs.  The rail service currently connects the airport with Amtrak trains in the Northeast Corridor Rail Line and New Jersey Transit.

During the closure, the Port Authority will provide shuttle bus service between Newark Liberty and Newark Penn Station. The service will also run between the airport’s terminals and parking and rental car lots P2 and P3, as well as the P4 Garage. Shuttle service between the terminals and the P6 long-term economy parking lot will continue to operate as usual.

Shuttle service between the terminals and parking lots will be available to passengers free of charge, while buses between the airport and Newark Penn Station will charge the same ticket fee as the regular AirTrain service.

The Port Authority plans to have customer care representatives attired in red jackets on hand to assist passengers during the closure.
