Weekend transportation tips ahead of storm (1/22/16)

EDISON - New Jersey Transit has suspended service for its buses, trains and light rails due to the pending winter snowstorm.

The suspension is part of Gov. Chris Christie’s declared state of emergency.

Service will resume Saturday as weather conditions permit. Mandatory federal inspections will also have to take place to make sure all transit infrastructure is safe.
To help offset travel issues, NJ Transit is cross-honoring systemwide between trains, buses and light rails for Saturday and Sunday.

Access Link service is suspended Saturday and will resume service at 12 p.m. Sunday.

Amtrak will be modifying its weekend service. The service is contacting customers whose reservations may have been changed and offering them alternatives.

Otherwise, Amtrak is strongly encouraging anyone riding the Northeast Corridor or East Coast lines to keep a close eye on their website or app for updated information.
Area airports are also seeing travel issues due to the storm.

Hundreds of flights arriving at or leaving from Newark Liberty International Airport have been canceled or delayed. United Airlines has shut down operations at all airports between New York and Washington, D.C. A spokesperson for United says that flights are not expected to resume until Sunday.

Anyone with a flight booked for this weekend is urged to contact their airline for their flight’s status.

Emergency management officials are urging most New Jerseyans to stay off the roads and avoid travel is possible.
