Transit

Reducing the number of cars on the road is the best way to manage traffic congestion during construction. There are several expanded or new public transportation options that have been put in place in connection with this project.

Taking transit has just become easier.


The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), in cooperation with NJ TRANSIT and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANY), has developed a plan for expanded mass transit service for Pulaski Skyway northbound motorists during the deck replacement. To meet anticipated demand, these transit enhancements are planned to encourage and accommodate increased ridership.

NJ TRANSIT service enhancements:

  • New express bus service on the Route 22 corridor
    NJ TRANSIT will debut a new bus line on March 3, 2014 which will offer regular, peak-hour service along the Route 22 Corridor between Watchung and Newark Penn Station serving several intermediate communities via Mountain and Morris avenues. The new bus line (Number 95) would operate exclusively during peak hours, providing an additional 330 seats for customers during each peak period.

  • Morris & Essex (M&E) Lines
    NJ TRANSIT will add two train trips each morning and two train trips each evening on the M&E Lines between Summit and Hoboken Terminal. Two of the trains will operate during the peak periods, with the other two trains operating just outside of peak times, resulting in an additional 900 seats each morning and the same number each evening.

  • Raritan Valley Line
    NJ TRANSIT plans to add additional seating capacity on Raritan Valley Line trains operating to Newark Penn Station during the morning peak period (6 to 10 am) and from Newark Penn Station during the evening (4 to 8 pm) peak. This will add 1,260 seats during each period.

  • North Jersey Coast Line
    NJ TRANSIT will add a train trip to the morning peak period schedule from Bay Head to Hoboken and a train to the evening peak period schedule from Hoboken to Bay Head, accommodating an additional 460 passengers each way.

PATH:

  • Increased PATH departures
    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey plans to increase the frequency of PATH departures from Newark Penn Station to help accommodate additional NJ TRANSIT rail and bus customers.

    PATH service in Hoboken will be able to accommodate additional customers for trips to Jersey City and New York City.
