NEWARK, NJ — With a blast of winter weather predicted to move into the region starting this evening, NJ TRANSIT is closely monitoring the storm, with operations, customer service and police personnel taking steps to minimize delays and ensure service reliability.


All customers are strongly advised to check njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip.


Systemwide Cross-Honoring in Effect:  To give customers additional travel options during expected winter weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will offer full systemwide cross-honoring all day Saturday, January 21, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode—rail, bus (NJ TRANSIT and private carriers) or light rail.  For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their bus pass on the train from Rutherford to New York Penn Station.  Similarly, customers who normally take the bus between Atlantic City and Lindenwold may use the Atlantic City Rail Line instead at no additional charge.


NJ TRANSIT is reminding customers of the following winter weather travel tips:
