Wood-Ridge Station (formerly known as Wood-Ridge-Moonachie[4]) is a New Jersey Transit rail station on the Pascack Valley Line. The station is in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey and is located at Park Place East, near the intersection of Route 17. The station originates back to the 1860s as part of the Hackensack and New York Railroad. The station at Wood-Ridge was soon replaced by a larger building on the opposite side of the tracks until 1967, when a widening of Route 17 caused the need to demolish the station depot. Along with Wood-Ridge, Carlstadt, Hasbrouck Heights and Williams Avenue stations were all demolished.[1]

This line runs to Hoboken Terminal with connections to New Jersey Transit one-stop service to New York Penn Station via the Secaucus Junction transfer station. Connections are available at the Hoboken Terminal to other New Jersey Transit rail lines, the PATH train at the Hoboken PATH station, New York Waterways ferry service to the World Financial Center and other destinations and Hudson–Bergen Light Rail service. The Pascack Valley line services this station seven days a week.
