NEWARK, NJ – NJ TRANSIT is your ride to NYC Restaurant Week! Customers can use their Mastercard to save on both NJ TRANSIT services and delicious meals during one of NYC’s most iconic summer events starting July 24 through August 20.

“As ridership continues to recover, partnerships like this are a great way to bring customers back or introduce new ones to using the transit system with the convenience of getting to New York City for Restaurant Week,” said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti. “NJ TRANSIT is proud to partner with Mastercard on this fun summer event.”

“NJ TRANSIT’s partnership with NYC Restaurant Week and Mastercard underscores our commitment to make our customers’ journey into New York City not only seamless and easy but also more rewarding,” said NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett. “We hope it encourages people to venture out, try something new and enjoy the savings.”

"We are pleased to partner with NJ TRANSIT and Mastercard to support the 2023 NYC Restaurant Week program this summer,” said Fred Dixon, President and CEO of New York City Tourism + Conventions. “Through this statement credit offer, our goal is to attract more visitors from New Jersey to experience the dynamic and diverse culinary offerings from some of our hundreds of participating restaurants across the five boroughs during this month-long celebration of New York City's dining scene.”

“Mastercard is excited to help New Yorkers and visitors continue to fulfill their passions for culinary experiences through NYC Summer Restaurant Week,” said Rustom Dastoor, Executive Vice President of North America Marketing and Communications at Mastercard. “We are thrilled to partner with NJ TRANSIT and New York City Tourism to provide Mastercard cardholders added rewards that inspire travel to New York City and enjoy some of the most unique culinary experiences at small and independent restaurants across the five boroughs.” 

NYC Restaurant Week is the highly anticipated—and often imitated—celebration of dining throughout New York City. The prix-fixe program invites diners to sample the incredible array of eateries that make up NYC’s culinary culture. NYC Restaurant Week returns this summer and will offer prix-fixe menus starting at $30 at hundreds of participating restaurants and neighborhood favorites across the five boroughs.

How It Works:

Mastercard cardholders can receive a $10 statement credit for each purchase of $45 or more when dining on-site at participating restaurants and using their registered Mastercard. To further sweeten the deal, customers can also receive an additional $10 statement credit when spending $20 or more with NJ TRANSIT, provided that they use the same registered Mastercard as used for their NYC Restaurant Week experience during NYC Restaurant Week (July 24–August 20, 2023).

The statement credit for the NYC Restaurant Week offer can be redeemed up to three times for a total statement credit of $30, and the NJ TRANSIT statement credit can also be redeemed up to three times for a total credit of $30.
