NEWARK, NJ ó NJ TRANSIT is preparing for Tropical Storm Hanna, which forecasters expect will bring heavy rain and high winds to New Jersey starting tomorrow morning.

NJ TRANSIT will make every effort to operate on a normal Saturday schedule during the storm. Additional NJ TRANSIT operations personnel will be stationed at key locations throughout the system to assist customers and respond to any weather-related disruptions caused by downed trees, flooding and overhead wire problems.

To give customers maximum travel flexibility, NJ TRANSIT will offer full, systemwide cross-honoring on Saturday, September 6, beginning at 6 a.m. Cross-honoring enables customers to use their NJ TRANSIT ticket or pass on any travel mode (bus, rail and light rail) for comparable trips. For example, a customer who normally commutes from Rutherford to New York via bus would have the option of taking the train using their bus pass.

As with any severe weather event, customers are strongly encouraged to check the NJ TRANSIT website, njtransit.com, prior to departing for up-to-the-minute travel advisories or listen to broadcast traffic reports. NJ TRANSITís website also can be accessed from any web-enabled mobile device.

Customers are urged to allow extra travel time and take special care during severe weather.
