NEW YORK — As of Monday, Aug. 19, Amtrak has added additional Northeast Corridor service to two stops in New Jersey.

New Brunswick and Princeton Junction, N.J., will gain weekday service, Delaware Business Now reports, with New Brunswick served by four southbound and two northbound trains, and Princeton Junction seeing five southbound and two northbound trains.

Most of the trains involved serve both communities, and all but one are Northeast Regional trains. Southbound train No. 111 (departing New York at 5:30 a.m.) will stop at New Brunswick at 5:55 a.m. and Princeton Junction at 6:18 a.m.; No. 89, the Palmetto (departing New York at 5:51 a.m.) stops at New Brunswick at 6:31 a.m. and Princeton Junction at 6:45 a.m.; No. 171, (departing New York at 12:35 p.m.), stops at New Brunswick at 1:20 p.m. and Princeton Junction at 1:35 p.m., and No. 177 (departing New York at 10:05) stops at New Brunswick at 10:46 p.m. and Princeton Junction at 11:01 p.m. Princeton Junction is also served by train No. 193, which departs New York at 5:27 p.m. and stops at Princeton Junction at 6:13 p.m.

Northbound, both stations will be served by train No. 148, which departs Washington, D.C., at 4:55 p.m. with stops in Princeton Junction at 7:35 p.m. and New Brunswick at 7:49 p.m.; and by No. 138, which departs Washington at 5:55 p.m., stopping in Princeton Junction at 8:35 p.m. and New Brunswick at 8:49 p.m.

Both stations already have extensive service by NJ Transit, but the Amtrak service can cut travel times to and from New York by more than a half-hour compared to the commuter railroad.
