NJ TRANSIT Ready to Help

Starting Saturday, April 12, 2014, the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will close the Pulaski Skyway northbound lanes (toward Jersey City and New York) to replace the 82-year-old bridge deck. Construction will affect motorists who take the Pulaski Skyway from the west and south to destinations in Hudson County, or those who use the Skyway to travel to other points north of the bridge and into New York City. Travel on Routes 1&9 (Truck), Route 7 and other roads will also be affected. To help ease congestion, NJDOT and NJ TRANSIT are working together to encourage ridesharing, vanpooling and transit use. Here is how NJ TRANSIT is assisting:

The Morris & Essex Lines (M&E) will operate two additional trains from Summit to Hoboken each weekday morning, and two additional trains from Hoboken to Summit each weekday evening. Customers can connect with Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, PATH or ferry services in Hoboken for service to Hudson County and New York.

The North Jersey Coast Line will operate one additional weekday morning peak period train (Bay Head to Hoboken) and one additional weekday evening peak period train (Hoboken to Bay Head). Customers can connect with Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, PATH or ferry services in Hoboken for service to Hudson County and New York.

The new No. 95 Route 22 Express Bus will operate between Watchung (Sears Park & Ride at Route 22 and Terrill Road) and NPS during the morning and evening peak periods. Customers can transfer at NPS to PATH for service to Hudson County and New York.

PATH will increase capacity between NPS and World Trade Center, and will accommodate additional demand at Hoboken.
