Cross Honoring:

 

You usually travel between Rutherford and New York on the 190 bus. Instead of taking the 190 you use the train to New York.

 

I'm kinda curious to know how PATH cross-honors tickets hough.

It is more than likely that the local buses on the barrier islands will be suspended (500 series) (313, 315, 552 in Wildwood, Cape May), 553 service beginning/ending at Hamilton Mall, 551 service beginning/ending at Avandale Park/Ride, similar situation on the 554, 559, 319 .... as well as the 317 and 800 series in North Jersey Coast because of the evacuations off the all barrier islands by 4 PM, while buses will be shuttling people to shelters

 

all of that before the full potential system wide shutdown

 

remember the difference between this storm and Irene is that it is not summer, so the islands are not as crowded as they were before/after Irene

Rail service remains suspended until futher notice due to major infrastructure damage, especially on the NJCL & ACRL.

 

Light rail service also is suspended till further notice

*Newark Light Rail suffered damage from Penn Station (flooding of platforms) to Branch Brook Park (trees on line)

*HBLR sustained washouts at West Side Ave & Port Imperial stations. Tonnelle Ave has trees on the overhead wire

*RiverLine has no power between Trenton & Camden

You need electricity for rail signals, hence no service

ohh ok IC would electrification make LRT riverline cheaper to run?

 

kinda curious for the future

 

 

Maybe but this is better than dealing with the overhead wires on the NLR & HBLR (never been on the riverlne so idk, just stating my opinion)
