NJ TRANSIT CUSTOMERS ADVISED TO MONITOR SERVICE INFORMATION DURING FORECASTED STORM
Crews and equipment ready to respond as conditions warrant
August 3, 2020
NEWARK, NJ -- NJ TRANSIT anticipates regular service on its rail, bus, light rail and Access Link services through Wednesday as long as weather conditions permit safe operation. Parts of New Jersey are forecasted to experience heavy rain and strong winds, which could impact the overhead wires on rail and light rail service and prompt bus and Access Link detours due to potential road closures.
NJ TRANSIT will have personnel and assets in position to address any issues that may arise during or after the storm, which could include downed wires or trees.
NJ TRANSIT’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is open and closely monitoring weather forecasts and conditions as the storm develops. Key personnel will monitor any impacts to the system throughout the duration of the storm.
Customers are advised to use extreme caution around bus stops, stations and facilities in the event high water conditions exist. Customers should also build extra travel time into their schedules as residual delays and some cancellations may occur from the residual effects of the storm.
