Amtrak has also resumed Acela Express and Northeast Regional service between Philadelphia and New York. It says riders should expect residual delays.

The low voltage condition was reported around 8 a.m. Tuesday on the Northeast Corridor. Amtrak crews were sent out to fix the problem, which was resolved shortly before 9 a.m.

NJ TRANSIT tickets are continuing to be cross-honored on buses and PATH trains.
