NEWARK, NJ –
In the wake of yesterday’s service disruption at New York Penn Station, NJ TRANSIT is reminding customers of the availability of a brochure designed to assist them in the event of just such a disruption.

The first multi-modal reference of its kind, “Don’t Get Stuck in the Dark” provides alternate transportation options between New Jersey and New York, key agency telephone numbers, website addresses and a map identifying train, bus, light rail, PATH and ferry terminals.

“This guide is a practical tool that will help passengers understand their options in the event of a major service disruption,” said George D. Warrington, NJ TRANSIT Executive Director. “It’s something every commuter should keep in their briefcase.”

The guide was first distributed in August—one year after the Northeast Blackout.

Copies of the “Don’t Get Stuck” brochure are available at major NJ TRANSIT bus and rail terminals, by calling 1-800-772-2222 or on the web at njtransit.com.

NJ TRANSIT is the nation’s largest statewide public transportation system providing more than 752,600 daily trips on 240 bus routes, three light rail lines and 11 commuter lines. It is the third largest transit system in the country with 162 rail stations, 49 light rail stations and more than 17,000 bus stops linking major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.
