ASBURY PARK, NJ — NJ TRANSIT is making it easy and affordable for families to take in all the sights and sounds that make New Jersey summers so special, with package deals and other discounts to a host of great destinations.

 

Whether you want a laid-back day of surf, sun and summer reading at a beach along the Jersey Shore or the excitement offered by Atlantic City, the horse races or amusement parks, NJ TRANSIT has the summer service to get you there.

 

“We have put together packages and transit service plans to help New Jerseyans create affordable family adventures without having to travel far from home,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director Richard Sarles.  “NJ TRANSIT helps put summertime day trips and vacations around the state within easy reach.”

 

Beach packages

  • Save up to $6.50 on admission to six great beaches – Long Branch, Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Bradley Beach, Belmar and Manasquan – by purchasing a NJ TRANSIT Beach Package (round-trip train fare and a beach admission ticket) in a single transaction at NJ TRANSIT ticket vending machines (choose “Special Promotions” and select “Beach Package”) or at  ticket windows. 
  • Customers can purchase the package for $22 from Penn Station New York or any station on the Main, Bergen County or Pascack Valley lines, and for $17 from Hoboken or Newark Penn Station. 

Six Flags Great Adventure or Hurricane Harbor package
