NJ Transit Prepares For Weekend Winter Storm

NEWARK—As winter weather moves into the region, NJ TRANSIT operations, customer service and police personnel across the state are preparing the system to minimize service suspensions and delays to the extent possible.

Depending on the impact of the storm, it may be necessary for NJ TRANSIT to modify service as conditions change.


Customers are advised of the following:

Access Link: On Saturday, all Access Link para transit service will be cancelled in Camden, Burlington, Gloucester, Salem Cumberland, Cape May, Atlantic and Ocean counties.

Bus Service: While every effort will be made to continue operating bus service throughout the state, customers will experience delays, detours or cancellations on their routes due to significant snowfall and blizzard conditions expected in some regions, particularly in southern New Jersey. Customers are advised to plan accordingly and anticipate disruptions to bus service.

Rail Service: On Saturday, Northeast Corridor 7600-series trains, which operate between Rahway and New York, will be cancelled. Customers who normally use 7600-series trains may use other Northeast Corridor or North Jersey Coast Line trains to/from Trenton or Long Branch instead.

To give customers additional travel options during expected winter weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will offer full systemwide cross-honoring starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, February 5 and continuing all day on Saturday, February 6, enabling NJ TRANSIT customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode-rail, bus or light rail.

For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their bus pass on the train from Rutherford to New York Penn

In addition, indoor waiting rooms at outlying rail stations will remain open throughout the weekend to provide customers with shelter during the storm. Outlying station buildings are normally closed on weekends.

Travel Advice:
Before starting your trip, visit the Travel Alerts page at njtransit.com for up-to-the-minute service information. This information is also available by calling (973) 275-5555 or from broadcast traffic reports. Allow extra time getting to and from your destination.

Use extreme caution when walking on exposed sidewalks or station platforms and when boarding trains and buses. Report slippery or unsafe conditions to bus operators, train crews or NJ TRANSIT staff. Listen closely to public address announcements at stations for late-breaking service information.
