TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – New Jersey Transit suspended River Line service late Thursday night.
The light rail connects Camden and Trenton.
NJ Transit said it’s making emergency mechanical inspections and repairs to its fleet of light rail vehicles.
“During regularly scheduled inspections, some wheels on a light rail vehicle failed to meet the required safety standards. A preliminary inspection indicates there was a defect in a single batch of wheels delivered by the original manufacturer,” a statement on the website says. “Out of an abundance of caution, a comprehensive inspection is being conducted on every wheel of each vehicle which is a highly labor intensive process.”
Express and local bus services have been added to accommodate customers between the four busiest stations.
