Rail services suspended on all lines except Atlantic City Rail Line

Trenton, NJ ( Mercer) Governor Phil Murphy has declared a state of emergency beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday. State offices will be closed on Monday. All NJ Transit buses, rail (except Atlantic City Rail Line), light rail and Access Link service will be temporarily suspended systemwide Monday.

declaring a state of emergency, the governor urges all nonessential personnel to stay off the roads so not to interfere with law enforcement and emergency responders. An emergency declaration doesn’t mean motorists will be ticketed for merely being on the roads, and “essential” personnel is not defined by law. If conditions were to worsen and driving needs to be restricted for public safety reasons, the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management will alert the public “using all available means, including, but not limited to: the Emergency Alert System, urgent press releases, DOT highway signs, and law enforcement teletypes.”
