NJ Transit Customers Advised to Monitor Service Information During Tropical Storm Isaias

NJ Transit Bus

By Press Release

NEWARK – New Jersey Transit anticipates regular service on its rail, bus, light rail and Access Link services through Aug. 5, as long as weather conditions permit safe operation. 
According to a release, parts of New Jersey are forecasted to experience heavy rain and strong winds, which could impact the overhead wires on rail and light rail service and prompt bus and Access Link detours due to potential road closures.
New Jersey 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. 
New Jersey 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, in the event high water conditions 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.
