NEWARK, NJ — With frozen precipitation already falling across most of New Jersey and additional accumulation expected overnight, NJ TRANSIT operations, customer service and police personnel are taking steps to minimize delays and ensure service reliability.

 

All customers are encouraged to check njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip.

 

Systemwide Cross-Honoring in Effect:  To give customers additional travel options during winter weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT is offering full systemwide cross-honoring all day today, January 26 and Thursday, January 27, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode—rail, bus or light rail.  For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their bus pass on the train from Rutherford to New York Penn Station.  Similarly, customers who normally take the bus between Atlantic City and Lindenwold may use the Atlantic City Rail Line instead at no additional charge.

 

Extended Station Hours for Passenger Comfort:  All NJ TRANSIT rail station buildings and waiting rooms will remain open extended hours, including evenings and overnight, throughout the storm.

 

Rail Service:  NJ TRANSIT plans to operate a regular weekday schedule on Wednesday, January 26, and Thursday, January 27.

 

Bus Service:  While every effort will be made to continue operating bus service systemwide on a regular weekday schedule, customers may experience delays, detours or service adjustments on certain routes in the event of significant snowfall.  Customers are advised to plan accordingly and allow additional travel time, as buses will be subject to local road conditions once the storm begins.

 

Light Rail Service:  NJ TRANSIT plans to operate a regular weekday schedule on Wednesday, January 26, and Thursday, January 27.
