Fancy taking a weekend trip out of Hoboken? Well, your options just got a bit easier with NJ Transit's new weekend rail service on a portion of the Montclair-Boonton Line from Bay Street Station in Montclair to Newark and Hoboken Terminal.

According to the official statement:

Starting on Nov. 8, NJ Transit will begin weekend trains with a demonstration rail service by extending existing train shuttles west to Bay Street Station in Montclair, that today operate only between Hoboken Terminal and Newark Broad Street on weekends.

Trains will operate approximately every two hours to and from Hoboken with stops at Bay Street, Glen Ridge, Bloomfield, Watsessing Avenue and Newark Broad Street stations, and will give customers the opportunity to connect at Newark Broad Street to Midtown Direct service to New York or to points west on the Morris & Essex Lines.
