NJ TRANSIT Announces Full, Systemwide Cross-Honoring due to Snow Storm - Effective Through Monday, January 25, 2016

With the latest winter storm moving toward the region, NJ TRANSIT operations, customer service and police personnel are taking steps to minimize delays, and ensure service reliability and safety due to the approaching winter storm.  All customers are strongly advised to check before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip.

Customers who would like to contact NJ TRANSIT can click on "Contact Us" on the homepage.

Customers are strongly urged to exercise extreme caution traveling in and around all transit facilities and when boarding or alighting buses and trains due to the expected icy conditions.

Systemwide Cross-Honoring in Effect on January 23 and January 24:

To give customers additional travel options during the expected winter weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will offer full system-wide cross-honoring beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, January 23, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode—rail, light rail or bus—including private bus carriers.

For example, customers who normally take the bus from Rutherford to the Port Authority Bus Terminal may use their bus pass or ticket 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 Atlantic City Rail Line instead at no additional charge.  Customers using their tickets or passes to travel to a destination other than the destination printed on their original ticket will be subject to the appropriate additional fare if applicable.

NJ TRANSIT will also continue to closely monitor the crowds at New York Penn Station, Hoboken Terminal and the Port Authority Bus Terminal and make adjustments to service as necessary.

The corporation is preparing to minimize disruptions and delays to the extent possible.  Rail and light rail crews and equipment are on standby to quickly respond to downed trees, power outages or other issues that may arise.  In addition, NJ TRANSIT will be positioning locomotives at strategic locations across the rail system to rapidly respond in the event of a disabled train.
