New Jersey Transit will discount all its rail tickets for a three-month stretch as it cancels several of its lines in a dash to finish installation of federally mandated emergency brakes by the end of the year, it said Thursday.
The 10 percent discount will apply to all rail tickets and passes during November, December and January, NJ Transit said, while the agency seeks to meet its Dec. 31 deadline.
Starting Oct. 14, the statewide transit agency will temporarily discontinue lines on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast Line, Morris & Essex Lines, Montclair-Boonton Line and Main and Bergen County Line, affecting dozens of trains.
Other trains throughout the system will also be subject to schedule and station-stop adjustments.
“Our customers will always be our first priority, and their experience must be safe and consistent. We thoughtfully reviewed all trains that are part of this adjustment and found the most reasonable alternatives,” said NJ Transit Executive Director Kevin Corbett in a statement.
In September, the Atlantic City Line was officially shut down for the remainder of 2018 while the agency continues installation along its only rail line in South Jersey.
