Fare Modernization

Customers on select bus routes are getting the first look at a pilot program that represents the next step in revolutionizing fare payment technology at NJ TRANSIT. Customers traveling on these Morris County bus routes are using a new onboard ticket validation system. This enhancement will simplify the boarding process and is the first step towards the future acceptance of contactless payments on buses.

During this initial phase, customers will scan the barcode on paper or mobile tickets or passes when boarding the No. 871, 872, 873, 874, 875 and 880 bus routes. A validator located near the operator will display a "Welcome'' message. The ticket or pass must be presented face up so the barcode can be scanned. Valid tickets or passes will display a green indicator with a "Have A Nice Trip" message.

Meanwhile, the recent launch of Access Link's online cashless payment application, EZ Wallet, is another example of digital advancements in fare collection for NJ TRANSIT. The innovative Access Link Online allows for cashless, electronic fare payments through EZ-Wallet for paratransit customers when reserving Access Link services. More than 53,000 customers can use Access Link Online to pay fares, make Access Link reservations, check the status of their trip, get real-time estimated pickup times, cancel a trip, communicate with staff, and more.
