SUFFERN, N,Y. -- Suffern Station is the only tarin station used by New Jersey Transit in New York that does not have Metro North-styled signage trackside, instead employing NJT's black and white signs.

Suffern Station is controlled by New Jersey Transit and also used by the Metro-North Railroad. 

Metro-North's Port Jervis Line joins New Jersey Transit's Main Line at this station. 

These two lines offer service (usually one-seat) from Port Jervis to Hoboken, N.J., and New York City via Secaucus Junction. 

Most trains arriving from Port Jervis and headed to New York/Hoboken during rush-hour do not make any stops between Suffern and Secaucus, though a few also stop at Ramsey Route 17 and Ridgewood on the way. The same is true of trains coming back in the evening rush-hour.

The current station was built in 1941 by the Erie Railroad and replaced an older station near the site of the current New York State Thruway overpass. That older station, built in 1887, was destroyed in 1941 when the new station was built. A Wells Fargo Express Mail depot built in 1908 occupies the site and is now a museum.
