NEWARK, NJ — With a weather system expected to dump several inches of rain across the Garden State starting today and continuing through Saturday, NJ TRANSIT officials have continued preparations to minimize potential service suspensions and delays to the extent possible. All customers are advised to monitor njtransit.com, or monitor NJ TRANSIT’s twitter feed at @NJ_TRANSIT for the latest service information.
While every effort will be made to continue operating rail, bus, light rail and Access Link services throughout the state, customers may experience delays, detours or cancellations on their routes should conditions warrant it. For this reason, customers are advised to plan accordingly and anticipate potential disruptions to service.
To offer customers additional travel options during the expected inclement weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will offer full system wide cross-honoring starting at noon today and continuing through midnight, enabling NJ TRANSIT customers to reach their final ticketed destination through an alternate travel mode—rail, light rail, as well as on both NJ TRANSIT bus and private bus carriers.
For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their ticketed 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 their ticketed bus pass on the train instead. Customers using their tickets or passes to travel to a destination other than the destination printed on their original ticket will be subject to the appropriate additional fare if applicable.
