The transit agency announced Wednesday that most buses would be running Thursday and that Access Link paratransit service also would resume limited service.

The private bus line Academy Bus has also restored some of its commuter service between Monmouth, Ocean and Middlesex Counties and New York City.

Most of New Jersey Transit's rail system remains suspended until further notice.
