A NJ Transit train arriving from Trenton to Pennsylvania Station, or Penn Station, derailed at a slow speed during the busy rush-hour commute.

After the second derailment in less than two weeks, New Jersey Transit commuters are facing another challenging commute to work Tuesday. Amtrak owns and maintains Penn Station's tracks and infrastructure. Amtrak officials said they're not sure how long it's going to take to complete the repairs. On March 24, an Amtrak train also jumped the tracks while pulling into the station.

NJ Transit said it has service suspensions and delays. Reports indicate that over 600 people needed to walk across the tracks to get back up to the nearest train station platform.

Commuter trains are still delayed a day after one derailed at Penn Station. No serious injuries were reported.

The Northeast Corridor is running on a holiday schedule and several NJ Transit trains were canceled Tuesday.

He's absolutely correct that NJ Transit is the "absolute worst" and also "incompetent", but he didn't end up missing the game. NJ Transit officials said that the cause of the derailment was still under investigation.

The remaining LIRR trains from Penn Station could experience delays and crowding, the MTA says. In major cities like NY and Philly, you also can also avoid traffic (like I-95's never-ending construction) by taking the train.

Midtown Direct trains will run to and from Hoboken Terminal where riders can pick up PATH or NJ Transit bus, according to the statement.
