Bus Service:  NJ TRANSIT bus service in northern and central New Jersey (all routes north of I-195) will be suspended as of 8 p.m.  This includes all routes that serve Port Authority Bus Terminal and George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal, all routes that operate via U.S. Route 9, and all northern local bus routes.  This service suspension will remain in effect until further notice, and will be lifted when buses can again safely operate throughout the impacted area.

Bus service will continue to operate in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester,Mercer and Salem counties unless weather conditions change.

Rail Service:  NJ TRANSIT’s Morris & Essex Lines (including Gladstone Branch service), Montclair-Boonton Lines and all Midtown Direct services will be suspended as of 8 p.m.
 
Due to high wind gusts, heavy snow accumulation and the possibility of falling trees, NJ TRANSIT is suspending rail service on these lines that were heavily hit by Hurricane Sandy, which took away system redundancies.  This step also is being taken to avoid potentially stranding customers in the territory that is being hardest hit by the storm.

This suspension will continue through tomorrow, Sat., February 9.  It should be noted that it takes at least 12 hours to restore rail service once it has been suspended.

However, rail crews will be on standby at key locations to expedite the start of service after crews have completed inspections, any necessary repairs are complete, and conditions have been deemed safe for customers and employees.

In addition, customers are advised that prior to 8 pm, some trains may be cancelled and/or combined due to deteriorating weather conditions.

Customers are encouraged to log onto njtransit.com – or follow NJ TRANSIT’s twitter feed at @nj_transit for further service updates.
