Grade Crossings

Help us keep you and your community safe around grade crossings. If you notice a problem or dangerous condition at a grade crossing such as a car stuck on the tracks or a malfunctioning crossing gate, immediately contact NJ TRANSIT Police.

Look for a blue sign posted near the crossing that displays NJ TRANSIT's Police contact number (800-242-0236), a U.S. Department of Transportation crossing identification number, and the street name. Report your observations as well as the information included on the sign to the Police.

Be familiar with these signs - you could save a life.
