NJ Transit is kicking off the unofficial start of summer with “early getaway” rail and bus service on today, May 25, for the benefit of customers leaving work early for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
On Friday, May 25, extra outbound trains will operate on the Northeast Corridor, North Jersey Coast, Raritan Valley, Morris & Essex, and Port Jervis lines starting at approximately 1 p.m. Extra buses will operate from the Port Authority Bus Terminal on more than two dozen bus routes starting around noon.
On Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, trains will operate on a weekend/major holiday schedule on all lines. Bus schedules vary by route.
Every weekend, families riding NJ Transit can save with the Family Super Saver Fare, which allows two children 11 and younger to travel free with each fare-paying adult. For the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the program will be extended and in effect from 7 p.m. Friday, May 25 until 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 29.
