The NJ Transit delays were caused by a disabled train blocking one of the tracks, the agency said. PATH trains would honor NJ Transit tickets to Hoboken and Newark Penn Station until 8 p.m. to help ease the evening rush.
The Northeast Corridor, New Jersey Coast, Morris & Essex, Main/Bergen/Port Jervis, Passaic Valley and River lines were all hit with delays, which had largely subsided by 8 p.m.

LIRR trains were suspended after someone was struck on the tracks near Forest Hills. Westbound service has since been restored, but the MTA said customers should still expect eastbound delays of 30 to 40 minutes through Jamaica.
