Trains and buses added for Thanksgiving


NJ TRANSIT will offer additional trains and buses this Thanksgiving weekend to make it easier for customers to travel for the holidays.

NJ TRANSIT will offer “early getaway” rail and bus service on Wednesday, Nov. 27, for the customers leaving work early, and to provide additional capacity for customers traveling to Newark Liberty International Airport.

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is typically the busiest day of the year at Newark Airport’s rail station, with ridership levels about twice that of a typical weekday.

Customers are urged to purchase their tickets early – round trip preferably – to avoid lines or download NJ TRANSIT’s mobile app available free at the App Store and Google Play.

For the Thanksgiving holiday, NJ TRANSIT’s Family SuperSaver Fare, which allows up to two children 11 and younger to travel free with each fare-paying adult, will be in effect from 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 27 until 6 a.m. Monday, Dec. 2.

On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, NJ TRANSIT will add extra trains and buses in the morning and midday hours to accommodate customers traveling to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

On Friday, Nov. 29, traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year, enhanced bus service will be offered to shopping centers throughout New Jersey. Additional trains will operate to and from Penn Station New York.
