NJ Transit is suspending all service Saturday, due to the major snowstorm moving through New Jersey.

The announcement late Friday night is a change from earlier, tentative plans to operate buses and trains on normal schedules, while cross-honoring tickets.

Bus, rail, light rail and Access Link service will all shut down at 2 a.m. Saturday, with service for trains and buses resuming when weather conditions permit, NJ Transit said. Access Link is set to resume at noon Sunday.

“The safety of our customers, employees and citizens remains our top priority at NJ TRANSIT,” NJ TRANSIT interim Executive Director Dennis J. Martin said in a statement Friday night. “By suspending service, this will allow us to take the necessary actions to protect the system then quickly and safely resume services when conditions warrant.”

Patrol trains will operate during the service suspension on the rail and light rail systems to keep tracks, switches and overhead catenary wires clear of building snow and ice conditions, NJ Transit said.

NJ TRANSIT cross-honoring of tickets and passes on bus, rail, light rail and private bus carrier services remains in effect through Sunday, once services are running. The cross-honoring could be extended if weather conditions require it.
