EDISON - The impending blizzard is expected to make traveling around New Jersey a bit difficult Tuesday.

New Jersey Transit says that all bus and Access Link service will be suspended Tuesday as of 12:01 a.m. All NJ Transit rail lines will operate on a weekend schedule Tuesday, with the exception of the Atlantic City Rail line, which will operate its regular weekday schedule.

The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail will operate on a weekend schedule with the addition of service, operating every 20 minutes, between Tonnelle Avenue and Hoboken Terminal.  The Newark Light Rail will operate on a Saturday schedule, and RiverLINE service will operate on a Sunday schedule.

NJ Transit will also have cross-honoring in effect for Tuesday, which will allow customers to use their NJ Transit passes and tickets on any rail, light rail, PATH or ferry service.

Amtrak will also operate on a modified schedule for Tuesday. The company says there will be no Acela Express service between New York City and Boston and limited service between New York City and Washington, D.C.

Other Amtrak rail service will be modified. The company is urging travelers to check the Amtrak website for the latest information on service.

Hundreds of flights have been canceled across the country in anticipation of the storm. 

Nearly 89 percent of flights scheduled to leave Newark Liberty International Airport Tuesday were canceled by Monday evening. Airport officials urged passengers whose flights were still on to get to the airport early to allow for extra travel time in the parking lots and terminals.

Travelers should check with their flight carriers to find out the status of their flights.

Although a travel ban on New Jersey roadways was not been put into place, Gov. Chris Christie urged all New Jersey residents to stay off the roads as much as possible Tuesday to allow plows to clear the roads and to make way for emergency service vehicles.

The governor declared a state of emergency for New Jersey Monday afternoon ahead of the storm.
