20 Years Later…

Remembering the Events of 9/11

It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since September 11, 2001. But the memories of that day are still very much alive, particularly for those who lived and experienced it. The timeline of events is as striking today as it was two decades ago.

Cross-Honoring and How to Use It

NJ TRANSIT has an important tool for your customer toolbox – cross-honoring!

When there are significant service disruptions that affect your travel, such as severe weather or unexpected shutdowns, we may announce that cross-honoring is in effect. Cross-honoring allows you to take alternate service on NJ TRANSIT or another transportation provider to your final destination, giving you added travel flexibility at no additional cost.

Here are a few examples of how cross-honoring might work.

The Bus Stops Here!

Where’s my bus stop? Where’s my bus? Can I request a shelter? Those are some of the most frequent questions we receive from bus customers, particularly if you’re new to the system. To help you out, here are answers to these and other questions.

Have You Ever Wondered What Our Rail Icons Mean?

Back in 1999, NJ TRANSIT introduced a color-coded system for our rail lines, which helped customers identify and differentiate those lines. While this was a great improvement, we did even more in November 2003 when we introduced our ever-so-recognizable icons, or symbols, to assist customers who have difficulty distinguishing colors or who have language barriers, making the rail lines even more recognizable. These symbols are now found on our schedules, website and Twitter accounts.

How It All Began

Happy 42nd Birthday NJ TRANSIT!
We would like to share how NJ TRANSIT was born! It all started on July 17, 1979, with the Public Transportation Act of 1979, which established NJ TRANSIT to “acquire, operate and contract for transportation service in the public interest.” 

All Aboard the Wilder Express!

There’s something special about a young boy and trains. Wilder McGraw takes it to another level when it comes to NJ TRANSIT trains.

Following a recent move to Ridgewood, NJ, Wilder became fascinated with NJ TRANSIT. So much so, his mom, Jordi, and dad, Ross, take Wilder regularly to the train station so he can watch the trains pull in and out of the station, and wave to the locomotive engineers, train crew members and customers.
