Holiday Travel Tips:

  • Face coverings are required on board trains, buses, and inside stations.
  • Check Schedules in Advance:   Plan your trip online to become familiar with all travel options.
  • Ticketing:  Purchase round-trip tickets at the start of your trip to speed your return.  Use the Mobile App, ticket vending machines, or see a ticket agent, if available, to avoid possible surcharges.
  • Use  NJ TRANSIT’s mobile app for a seamless experience purchasing tickets.
  • Plan accordingly. Customers should familiarize themselves with NJ TRANSIT schedules and fares before starting their trip. To see the schedules and fare information, visit www.njtransit.com.
  • Luggage:  Travel as light as possible.  Passengers with luggage or packages should use the overhead racks or designated luggage spaces.  On multilevel trains, customers with large bags should use the mezzanine levels at the ends of each car. Purchase round-trip tickets in advance to avoid potentially long lines.
  • Service advisories: Customers should download the latest version of the NJ TRANSIT mobile app and customize service alert notifications available via push notifications.
  • Stay connected to NJ TRANSIT social media during your commute. Search for rail, bus, or light rail-specific Twitter accounts for the best information
