NJ Transit, PATH shuts down as storm approaches

TRENTON - New Jersey Transit has implemented a gradual system-wide shutdown of all bus, rail, light rail and Access Link service, ahead of the massive storm bearing down on the state.

Gov. Chris Christie announced the plans Sunday afternoon.

The service suspension process requires the relocation and securing of buses, rail equipment and other NJ Transit assets away from flood-prone areas. It also requires complete coordination with state and local officials throughout the process.

PATH says it will shut down its commuter train service at 12:01 a.m. Monday ahead of the massive storm headed for the eastern third of the U.S.

System-wide cross-honoring of all rail, bus and light rail tickets will be in effect through Wednesday at 6 a.m. This will allow customers holding NJ Transit tickets to use alternate means of transportation to get to their final destination, such as PATH, PATCO and private bus carriers.
