NJ Transit announces full system wide cross-honoring in advance of winter storm

NEWARK — 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 njtransit.com before traveling for up-to-the-minute service information before starting their trip.

To give customers additional travel options during the expected winter weather conditions, NJ Transit will offer full system wide cross-honoring on Saturday, Jan. 24, 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. 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.

NJ Transit plans to operate a regular Saturday schedule on Saturday, Jan. 24. Depending on the impact of the storm, it may be necessary for NJ Transit to modify service as conditions change.

While every effort will be made to continue operating bus service throughout the state, customers may experience delays or detours on their routes in the event of extreme winter weather conditions.  Customers are advised to plan accordingly and anticipate disruptions to bus service.
