TRANSIT to Trails
NJ TRANSIT is known for being a transportation service mainly used for commuting to work or getting around, but not for taking you to the great outdoors. Until now.
We’ve released another new feature for you on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app and it’s getting rave reviews. Map My Ride allows you to locate your approaching train or bus on a virtual map, as well as see its estimated arrival time!
For bus customers, “My Bus” is the best way to start your journey in the app. When you choose your bus route, direction of travel and bus stop, a real-time map will open, revealing your bus route and the next bus approaching your stop.
The nation will celebrate the 4th of July this year in a variety of ways, including traditional fireworks displays and festivals. After many events were canceled last year due to the pandemic, festivities are making a strong comeback.
If you’re looking to attend a July 4th event in New Jersey and need a ride, NJ TRANSIT may have your ticket to get there. See our information below to help you plan your trip. Among the displays around New Jersey with NJ TRANSIT service nearby:

June is National Safety Month, established in 1996 by the National Safety Council. The goal of Safety Month is to increase public awareness of safety and health risks, and to reduce the number of injuries and deaths at home or in the workplace.
For NJ TRANSIT, this includes implementing and promoting safety measures on and around our system for customers, employees, pedestrians and motorists.
