We now know when the Atlantic City Rail Line will return to service.

In a very brief statement posted on its website, New Jersey Transit says the Atlantic City Rail Line will return to service on Friday, May 24th.

Commuters had grown frustrated at the lack of a firm date from NJ Transit for the restoration of service on the line, which has been suspended since the beginning of September 2018 for Positive Train Control work. The work has been completed, but NJ Transit has only said service would resume during the second quarter of the year.

Executive Director Kevin Corbett earlier in the week said that a date would be announced within the next three weeks. Gov. Phil Murphy said Tuesday at a media event that Corbett and his team "can do better."
