NEWARK, NJ –
NJ TRANSIT will extend River LINE service until 11:30 p.m. on Friday, August 12, allowing customers attending the ‘Warped Tour’ at the Camden Waterfront to take the light rail after the event.

Customers also have the option of parking for free until midnight at the 36th Street Station park-and-ride and taking the light rail to Camden.

The River Line fare is $1.25 for a one-way ticket, and customers holding NJ TRANSIT monthly or weekly rail passes can ride the light rail at no additional fare at any time. Parking is free at all stations except Trenton.
