Safety Tips to Weather the Winter

NJ TRANSIT wants to make sure you have a safe travel experience this winter and beyond. You can accomplish this with some extra caution and these helpful winter travel tips:

  • Check, listen to media reports and monitor weather conditions to determine if bus, rail, light rail or Access Link service is affected.
  • Do not rush to your bus stop, light rail station or train station; arrive safe.
  • Travel light during bad weather. It makes it easier to maneuver.
  • When traveling with children, hold their hands when boarding or exiting trains or buses and be aware of their location at all times.
  • During inclement weather, be aware some railcar center doors may not open to prevent potential malfunctions or delays.
  • Be aware of slippery platform edges and curbs when boarding trains and buses.
  • Use hand rails on trains and buses.
  • Stand clear of NJ TRANSIT employees as they remove snow and ice.
  • Use caution when walking and driving in parking lots.
