NEWARK, NJ - NJ TRANSIT is providing a convenient way to get to and from New Year's Eve festivities by adding at least 15 evening and late-night trips on the River LINE on Monday, December 31.

Revelers planning to ring in the New Year on the Camden Waterfront can avoid driving and parking hassles by taking advantage of free parking at the Pennsauken/Route 73 Park & Ride Station. Frequent River LINE service from Pennsauken whisks customers to the Walter Rand Transportation Center in 10 minutes and to the Waterfront Entertainment Center in 17 minutes.

The last northbound train from Camden is scheduled to depart the Waterfront Entertainment Center Station at 1:00 a.m., with an additional trip 15 minutes later if needed. Normally, the last weekday departure serving all stations to Trenton departs the Waterfront Entertainment Center at 8:59 p.m.
