NEWARK, NJ — With winter weather still moving through the region, NJ TRANSIT has extended full systemwide cross-honoring through the end of the service day Friday, March 8, enabling NJ TRANSIT customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode—rail, bus or light rail, as well as private carrier buses. 

 

NJ TRANSIT continues to monitor the storm and take steps to minimize delays and ensure service reliability and safety.  All customers are strongly advised to check njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip.

 

High winds reported throughout the region overnight caused no damage to the NJ TRANSIT system, and all trains, buses and light rail lines are operating on or close to schedule this morning.  In light of the potential for high winds and heavy, wet snow to impact the region today into tomorrow, rail and light rail crews and equipment remain on standby to quickly respond to downed trees, power outages or other issues that may arise. 

 

NJ TRANSIT will be positioning locomotives at strategic locations across the rail system to rapidly respond in the event of a disabled train.  In addition, NJ TRANSIT will closely monitor the crowds at New York Penn Station, Hoboken Terminal and the Port Authority Bus Terminal and make adjustments to service as necessary.

 

Customers are advised of the following:
