If a strike is called expect some severe overcrowding conditions and short trains. (NJT) has banned the R44s from Hoboken and some NJTA crews will be used to replace Amtrak crews on the Scranton-NY (diverted to Hoboken) trains that use NJTA's MUs. NJTA will cross-honor all bus and rail tickets and NJTA passes will be valid to enter the subway at the 175th Stret (A) and for travel on (NJT) over the GWB.
