NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit train passengers are facing new schedules as ridership drops amid measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Beginning Friday, all weekday trains, with the exception of the Atlantic City Rail Line, are operating on weekend schedules with slight modifications. Gladstone Branch rail service will only operate on weekends. Eight extra trips will run between Dover and Hoboken on weekdays only. Bus, Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, Newark Light Rail, Riverline and Access Link service will continue on weekday schedules. NJ Transit says its ridership has plummeted almost 90% in the last week amid measures to stem the spread of the virus.
