NJ Transit Will Honor Cross-Service Passes

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – With 12 to 18 inches expected to fall in New Jersey, NJ Transit said it’s taking steps to minimize delays and ensure service reliability throughout Sunday’s storm.

In a release, NJ Transit advised that its customers will be able to utilize multiple travel options for the storm, including a “system wide cross-honoring” of services starting at noon on Sunday and continuing all day on Monday.

“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 Atlantic City Rail Line instead at no additional charge,” according to NJ Transit.

NJ Transit continued saying that customers may still experience delays, detours and cancellations due to significant snowfall amounts and blizzard conditions.

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 and from broadcast traffic reports.
  • Allow extra time getting to and from your destination.  Use extreme caution when walking on exposed sidewalks, parking lots and station platforms, as well as when boarding trains and buses.
  • Report slippery or unsafe conditions to bus operators, train crewmembers or other NJ TRANSIT personnel.
  • Customers with web-enabled mobile devices can access real-time service information via the mobile version of njtransit.com. To access the site, simply enter njtransit.com on your mobile device.

NJ TRANSIT Preparations for Winter Weather

Rail Operations

  • Hundreds of rail cars and locomotives have been “winterized,” a process that includes checking onboard heating systems, ventilation, thermostats, weather stripping and electronic components, as well as changing locomotive filters and fuel from a summer blend to a winter blend.
  • NJ TRANSIT’s preventative maintenance program also includes the inspection and winter maintenance of more than 750 switches and switch heaters, overhead wire systems, 12 moveable bridges and wayside power at storage yards and terminals.
  • Two jet-engine-powered snow blowers are available to remove ice and snow from tracks and critical switching areas. In addition, all locomotives are equipped with snowplows to clear snow from the rails.
  • NJ TRANSIT Rail Operations has 20,000 pounds of salt on hand with the ability to obtain an additional 100,000 pounds, if needed.

Bus Operations

  • Bus maintenance personnel have checked the heating systems, engine fluids, tires, windshield wipers, doors and airbrake systems on NJ TRANSIT’s 2,100 buses.
  • Bus snow-fighting equipment has been readied and ice/snow-inhibiting supplies have been restocked for winter to keep 52 bus loops, terminals and lots cleared throughout the state.
  • NJ TRANSIT Bus Operations has 600 tons of bulk salt on standby statewide, with each of its 15 garages stocked with bag salt.
  • Vendor contracts have been finalized to perform plowing of larger park/ride facilities.

Light Rail Operations

  • Snowplows are ready to clear station platforms and park/ride lots.
  • All switch heaters have been tested.

ON SATURDAY DEC.18TH I WAS SHOCKED OF WHAT BUS#11 DID ON BLOOMFIELD AVE IN Cedar Grove at 2:00pm. AN ELDERLY WOMAN raised her hand the bus stopped a little after the sign,she was walking slow towards the bus.the bus driver inched a foot upwards towards Montclair,the woman stopped for a second than continued towards the bus THE BUS LEFT WITHOUT HER!I WAS DISGUSTED TO SEE THAT AND DISAPPOINTED OF HOW IT COULD HAVE BEEN YOUR GRANDMA WAITING FOR THE BUS.I WAS ACROSS THE STREET waiting to go towards Bloomfield. THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN GD TO PUT ON THE INTERNET, UTUBE to show how an eldery woman hae to endure in the freezing 32 degree weather that she had to waitlonger for a bus!SHAME ON THE BUS DRIVER!
