Last Edited:
PENNSAUKEN, N.J. -

New Jersey Transit officials announced on Sunday, July 30th, that the Atlantic City Rail Line will remain suspended for two weeks between Philadelphia and Cherry Hill following a garbage truck accident on Friday, July 28th.

The announcement came two days after the truck struck a rail bridge in Pennsauken (over River Road) causing extensive damage to the tracks.

A substitute bus service was set up after the crash and will continue to run while the track is being repaired.

Officials say Atlantic City Rail Line tickets and passes will be cross-honored on PATCO, River Line Light Rail, and all NJ Transit bus routes in South Jersey.

NJ Transit trains will continue to operate between Atlantic City and Cherry Hill.
