NJ Transit improves trans-Hudson access

Posted on November 5, 2012

Coming on the heels of NJ Transit’s restoration of rail and bus service to New York and utilizing federal and regional transportation resources to ease traffic congestion, improve trans-Hudson access and further help New Jersey residents navigate around the state, the Christie Administration announced an emergency bus plan designed to transport New Jersey residents back to their jobs starting Monday morning.

The emergency bus service will provide transportation options for NJ Transit customers, with access to ferries, light rail and employment in Hoboken, Weehawken, Jersey City and Manhattan. This temporary emergency service is anticipated to provide approximately 50% of NJ Transit’s normal rail rush hour service.

While NJ Transit system restoration progress continues, the agency is still several weeks away from full service restoration. Emergency conditions still exist across the NJ Transit system and will continue for some time for regular commuters.

For instance, NJ Transit normally operates 63 trains into New York Penn Station during the morning peak. Beginning Monday, NJ Transit will only be able to operate 13 trains into New York during the peak – pending critically needed repairs to be completed by Amtrak.

Utilizing the regional transportation network with a base of operations out of park-and-ride locations in central and northern sections of New Jersey, emergency buses will transport customers to light rail and ferry services in Hoboken, Weehawken and HBLR’s Liberty State Park Station as well as providing limited, direct service to several boarding locations in lower Manhattan.
