NJ TRANSIT on Wednesday approved $17 million in contracts for companies that are already involved in post-Superstorm Sandy repair work.
The agency fixed an electric substation that, like much of the Hoboken Terminal, was decimated in Sandy. The substation provides power to trains.
By 6 p.m. Friday, however, the storm had moved mostly out to the Atlantic Ocean, leaving behind some significant snow totals for parts of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
NJ TRANSIT will begin offering full systemwide cross-honoring starting 2 p.m. Wednesday through the end of the service day on Thursday.
A spokesman says riders can interact with members of NJ TRANSIT’s executive management team – including the head of rail operations for Penn Station in Manhattan.
The transit agency has installed the first ticket machines that will dispense dollar bills instead of dollar coins for change at Newark Penn Station.
Tuesday’s “We Are Listening” forum was the second of three NJ TRANSIT officials are holding to hear directly from riders.
Ticket cross-honoring remains in effect systemwide for NJ TRANSIT.
The victim, whose name has not yet been released, suffered a broken leg in the incident.
Crews have been clearing snow and getting mass transit back up and running across the Tri-State area after some rail and bus service was halted by the blizzard.

The increase, which will take effect on March 1, will not impact everyone on the Pascack Valley, Bergen and Main Lines. Fares are only going up for those traveling to the northernmost station and for those on the Port Jervis Line.
NJ TRANSIT said crews finished making repairs in Little Falls early Thursday.
Several people were injured Wednesday morning when a NJ TRANSIT train collided with a tractor-trailer carrying buckets of paint.
