NJ Transit expects to offer regular service during storm

By ,

NJ Transit anticipates offering regular weekday service on its rail, bus and light rail systems today and regular weekend service during a storm.

NJ Transit will cross-honor rail, bus and private carriers and light rail until further notice. Customers may check njtransit.com, create a free account, and sign up for My Transit Alerts to receive customized notifications via email or text message. Customers may monitor NJ Transit’s social media feeds on Twitter and Facebook.

Updated information is also available by calling (973) 275-5555 or from broadcast traffic reports during the storm, which is expected to bring heavy rains and gusting winds.

For customers of Bus Route Nos. 196/197 only, NJ Transit rail today will cross-honor bus passes and tickets on the Port Jervis Line trains to/from Harriman, Tuxedo and Sloatsburg. The Shortline Bus will also cross-honor in Orange County, N.Y. The Warwick plan will be instituted if conditions warrant.

NJ Transit will have personnel and assets in position to address any issues that may arise during or after the storm. Its Emergency Operations Center will open Friday morning with key personnel monitoring any impacts on the transit system throughout the duration of the storm.
