NJ Transit resumes most bus service

Posted on November 1, 2012

The majority of NJ Transit bus service, including Access Link paratransit, will be restored on Thursday as part of Gov. Chris Christie Administration’s ongoing storm assessment and restoration efforts related to NJ Transit.

The service restoration comes on the heels of the Administration’s earlier announcement that River Line light rail service resumed operations at 3 p.m. Wednesday, making trips every 30 minutes between the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden and Trenton Transit Center.

“This is tremendous progress,” said Transportation Commissioner and NJ Transit Board Chairman James Simpson. “We are not out of the woods by any stretch, but we will continue working around the clock to further restore service where we can safely do so. On behalf of the entire NJ Transit family, we appreciate the patience and understanding of our customers during this difficult time.”

Due to significant damage to the state’s public transportation network, NJ Transit rail service will remain suspended until further notice. Newark light rail and Hudson Bergen light rail service also remain suspended until further notice.
