Making the trains all local stop in a time when tourists without cars typically use public transport to get to the Jersey Shore, and after sports betting came into Monmouth Park too? Quite possibly one of the worst ideas conceived this summer by NJT. I think NJT should run Jersey Shore expresses using the following stops:

New York-Penn or Hoboken
Newark Airport
Perth Amboy
Monmouth Park
Long Branch
All stops after Long Branch

And maybe some expresses can stop at certain stations, while others don't. For example, all trains stop at NYC/HOB, SEC, NWP, and EWR, but then some might run nonstop to Monmouth Park or Perth Amboy. And maybe after Long Branch trains only stop at Elberon, Asbury Park, Bradley Beach, Point Pleasant Beach, and Bay Head. The expresses should also run every hour/two hours.
I’m a bit surprised you don’t have all stops south from either South Amboy or Matawan - the latter of which is the busiest NJCL only station

I was relying on my memory to make up the stops here. Here's an updated list:

* = rapid express
@ = super express
*@New York Penn or *@Hoboken
*@Secaucus Junction
*@Newark Penn
*@Newark Airport
@Perth Amboy
@South Amboy
*@Red Bank (if MOM service is started from RB)
*@Monmouth Park (express stops at all stations south of MP)
*@Long Branch
*@Asbury Park
@Bradley Beach
*@Point Pleasant Beach
*@Bay Head

The expresses run every hour, shifting between the three types of service. Dual-mode engines are recommended. Monmouth Park station would also need to be expanded.

That it is, to people who live in and near NYC it makes the Jersey Shore beaches a lot less attractive, since they have other beaches they can reach by train that take a lot less time than NJCL locals.

There are many more south of Long Branch stops such as Belmar and Manasquan.
