NEWARK — With another winter storm moving toward the region, NJ Transit will offer full systemwide cross-honoring starting at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6, and continuing until the end of the service day Thursday, March 7, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode—rail, bus or light rail, as well as private carrier buses.
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 Station. Similarly, customers who normally take the bus between Atlantic City and Lindenwold may use the train instead.
NJ Transit plans to operate a regular weekday schedule Wednesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 7. Depending on the impact of the storm, it may be necessary to modify service as conditions change. Mass transit customers should check njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information regarding potential delays and service disruptions due to the storm.
According to NJ Transit, workers are preparing to minimize disruptions and delays to the extent possible, particularly in light of the potential for high winds and heavy, wet snow that may impact portions of the area beginning this afternoon. Rail and light rail crews and equipment are on standby to quickly respond to downed trees, power outages or other issues that may arise.
NJ Transit will be positioning locomotives at strategic locations across the rail system to rapidly respond in the event of a disabled train. In addition, NJ Transit will closely monitor the crowds at New York Penn Station, Hoboken Terminal and the Port Authority Bus Terminal and make adjustments to service as necessary.
