EDISON—Township officials, unveiled the new solar-powered automated ticket dispensing machines for the Edison Light Transit system last week.
Using shuttle buses, Edison Light Transit provides 50,000 rides a year to Edison residents.The township transportation service gives commuting residents 200 rides per day to and from the Edison Train Station.
In the past, residents using this service would have to buy tickets at two local stores. Now, they can purchase tickets 24 hours a day, seven days a week at the two solar-powered machines located on eastbound and westbound sides of the Edison Train Station tracks. Residents can use exact change or pay with credit and debit cards.
“One of the many great reasons people want to live in Edison is because you have great commuting access to jobs in New York City, Newark and Trenton. With these new machines, we have upgraded, modernized and made the commute easier for our residents,” Mayor Jun Choi said.
