12/1/2019

From NJ TRANSIT:

Crews and equipment ready to respond as conditions warrant

NEWARK - NJ TRANSIT anticipates regular service on its rail, bus, light rail and Access Link services for Sunday and Monday as long as weather conditions permit safe operation.  Parts of New Jersey are forecasted to experience snow and icy roadway conditions with rapid freezing of wet surfaces. There is also a possibility of wind gusts, which could impact the overhead wires on rail and light rail service.

Note: For customers of Bus Route Nos. 196/197, NJ TRANSIT rail will cross-honor bus passes and tickets on the Port Jervis Line trains to/from Harriman, Tuxedo and Sloatsburg through the end of the service day on Monday. Bus service to/from Warwick, N.Y., will originate/terminate at West Milford Park & Ride due to weather conditions.  Bus 196 will operate on a snow detour and will not operate on Skyline Drive.

NJ TRANSIT will have personnel and assets in position to address any issues that may arise during or after the storm, which could include downed wires or trees. 

NJ TRANSIT’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is open and closely monitoring weather forecasts and conditions as the storm develops. Key personnel will monitor any impacts to the system throughout the duration of the storm. 

Customers are advised to use extreme caution around bus stops, stations and facilities as slippery conditions may exist. Customers should also build extra travel time into their schedules as residual delays and some cancellations may occur from the residual effects of the storm. 

Snow fighting supplies and equipment have been dispatched across the state and are ready to be deployed as conditions warrant.
