Service Information for January 12, 2011

Updated 10:30 a.m. January 12, 2011

All customers are encouraged to check njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip.

Rail:
NJ TRANSIT is operating a regular weekday schedule on all rail lines. 

  • As of 10 a.m., most rail lines are on or close to schedule.
  • Due to weather conditions, trains may be subject to slower boarding and slightly longer dwell times at stations that could result in scattered minor delays (10-15 minutes) across the system.  Please allow additional travel time as a result.
  • Any train delayed or cancelled will be posted on the Travel Alerts page and an alert will be sent to customers via My Transit.
  • On Wednesday, the center doors on single-level rail cars will not be used, as part of an effort to improve reliability. Customers should use the doors located at the ends of each rail car to board the train. Because center doors are particularly susceptible to snow and ice issues, locking out the center doors improves reliability.

Bus: Regular weekday schedule in effect.  As of 10 a.m., most bus routes are on or close to schedule. Click here to view bus delays and service changes for your route.

Light Rail:

Similarly, customers who normally take the bus between Atlantic City and Lindenwold may use the Atlantic City Rail Line instead at no additional charge.
