BELMAR - New Jersey Transit is offering a faster way to travel south to the Jersey Shore.

The One Seat Rail Service allows commuters heading to the beach to stay on their train, rather than switch from an electric to a diesel train at Long Branch on the weekends.

For a limited time, NJ Transit will be using dual-mode trains which are both diesel and electric. Commuters who rode the new express line said it saved them about a half-hour of travel time. The One Seat program also offers two trains with express service in the evening, for commuters leaving the beach.

For now, the service is just a supplement to the usual hourly service and will end on Sept. 1. NJ Transit says it will monitor and review demand for the new service.
