Due to high winds and heavy snow, NJ Transit has decided to suspend some bus, rail and Access Link service Friday evening. The rail suspensions will continue through Saturday. Check njtransit.com for the latest information.

Bus Service: NJ TRANSIT bus service in northern and central New Jersey (all routes north of I-195) will be suspended as of 8 p.m. This includes all routes that serve Port Authority Bus Terminal and George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal, all routes that operate via U.S. Route 9, and all northern local bus routes. This service suspension will remain in effect until further notice, and will be lifted when buses can again safely operate throughout the impacted area.

Bus service will continue to operate in Cape May, Atlantic, Camden, Salem, Gloucester, Burlington, Mercer and Cumberland counties unless weather conditions change.

Rail Service: NJ TRANSIT’s Morris & Essex Lines (including Gladstone Branch), Montclair-Boonton Line and all Midtown Direct services will be suspended as of 8 p.m.

Due to high wind gusts, heavy snow accumulation and the possibility of falling trees, NJ TRANSIT is suspending rail service on these lines that were heavily hit by Hurricane Sandy, which took away system redundancies. This step also is being taken to avoid potentially stranding customers in the territory that is being hardest hit by the storm.

Access Link: Access Link paratransit service will be cancelled starting on Friday afternoon and continuing all day Saturday in Region 4 (Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth, and north Ocean counties), Region 5 (Essex, Union, Somerset and Morris counties) and Region 6 (Bergen, Hudson, Passaic and parts of Essex counties). No new outbound trips in these regions will be provided on Friday, and all return trips will be accomplished as early as possible. Full service will continue to operate in Region 2 (Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties) and Region 3 (Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, and south Ocean counties) unless conditions warrant otherwise.

Systemwide Cross-Honoring in Effect: To give customers additional travel options during expected winter weather conditions, NJ TRANSIT will continue to offer full system wide cross-honoring for the remainder of Friday, February 8 and Saturday, February 9, enabling customers to use their ticket or pass on an alternate travel mode--rail, light rail or bus. Additionally, NJ TRANSIT bus, rail, light rail and bus passes will be cross-honored on private carrier buses.
