Tickets and Fares

NJ TRANSIT offers an array of options for purchasing rail, bus, and light rail tickets including ticket vending machines at light rail stations and many rail stations and bus terminals. If you'd prefer to speak to a ticket agent, you can check out our Station Information pages to determine where offices are located and their hours. We also offer a variety of tickets including one-way, ten-trip and round-trip tickets. You can learn about all special fare options on our web pages for train, light rail, and bus.

Ways to Save

  • Family SuperSaver: Two children ages five through 11 may travel free with a passenger paying any valid fare. This program is available on trains, light rail, and buses during weekends and holidays from 7 p.m. Friday (or the day before a holiday) until 6 a.m. Monday (or the day after a holiday).
  • Monthly Pass Holders: Do you already have an NJ TRANSIT monthly pass? Use it to get to NJ PAC. And, it can be used to redeem the Family SuperSaver fare. The more you use it, the more you save!
  • Group Trips: Have more than nine people traveling to an event at NJ PAC? Click here to learn how to save up to 25 percent off with Group Trip discounts.

As a reminder, customers who are using a weekly or monthly rail pass, may present it on Newark Light Rail for free travel both before and after the event. Other riders must purchase Newark Light Rail tickets for travel to and from NJ PAC and time-stamp each ticket immediately prior to boarding light rail.

Travel Tips

  • To save time, buy your return trip ticket before traveling to NJ PAC.
  • Valid weekly/monthly passes are accepted for free travel on connecting light rail service, as well as bus service in Newark.
  • Customers using rail tickets to Newark Penn or Newark Broad Street stations must purchase light rail tickets separately for travel on the Newark Light Rail. All buses serving Downtown Newark require exact fare. If you are not using a rail pass to travel on connecting bus service, be sure to check to determine the fare prior to traveling.
  • Purchase your rail ticket prior to boarding the train. A $5 surcharge applies to tickets purchased onboard if ticket vending machines or ticket agents are available.
