NJ TRANSIT Increasing Service Following Winter Storm

NEWARK, NJ – As road conditions improve following today’s storm, NJ TRANSIT anticipates increasing service levels across Bus, Rail, Light Rail and Access Link for Wednesday March 15th.  Customers are strongly advised to check the status of the system on njtransit.com prior to making their trip, particularly bus and Access Link customers. 

 

Bus will resume regular service south of Route 195 for Wednesday March 15th. Bus service north of Route 195 may experience delays and detours due to local road conditions.

 

Access Link will resume regular service in Region 3 (Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland and South Ocean) effective 4 a.m. on Wednesday. All other Access Link regions will resume service at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. Please note: Access Link will not provide transfer or certification trips on Wednesday.

 

Rail service will operate on a President’s Day schedule on Wednesday. President’s Day  service is more robust than a weekend schedule, with additional service on some lines including service west of Dover on the M&E and west of Bay St. on the Montclair-Boonton Line.  However, trains do not operate out of Jersey Avenue on the Northeast Corridor or west of Raritan and Lake Hopatcong.

 

Please Note: The Atlantic City Rail Line will continue to operate on a regular weekday schedule.  Metro-North west of Hudson service, operated by NJ TRANSIT, on the Port Jervis and Pascack Valley lines will operate on a President’s Day schedule.

 

Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, Newark Light Rail and RiverLINE will all operate on regular weekday schedules.

 

Systemwide Cross-Honoring in Effect:  To give customers additional travel options, NJ TRANSIT will offer full systemwide cross-honoring, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode including rail, light rail, bus and PATH.   For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their bus pass or ticket 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.
