  • Check Schedules in Advance:  Plan your trip online or with the NJ TRANSIT mobile app to take advantage of extra trains and buses. 
  • Allow Extra Travel Time:  Traffic congestion during the long holiday weekend may affect bus travel times especially on routes using the Garden State Parkway or near the Lincoln Tunnel. Customers should plan accordingly.
  • Ticketing:  Purchase round-trip tickets at the start of your trip to speed your return.  Use the MyTix feature on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app, ticket vending machines or see a ticket agent, if available, to avoid possible surcharges.  Bus customers departing Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT) are reminded that tickets must be purchased before boarding the bus.
  • Luggage:  Travel as lightly as possible.  Passengers with luggage or packages should use the overhead racks or designated luggage spaces.  On multilevel trains, customers with bags should use the mezzanine levels at the ends of each car.
