NJ TRANSIT bus service to be restored

A majority of NJ TRANSIT bus service will be restored Thursday, Gov. Chris Christie’s office announced.

NJ TRANSIT rail service will remain suspended until further notice due to significant damage, officials said. Newark Light Rail and Hudson Bergen Light Rail service will also remain suspended.

The news of bus service being restored comes after the administration announced earlier today that River Line light rail between Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden and Trenton Transit Center has resumed operations.

“This is tremendous progress,” said James Simpson, commissioner of the Department of Transportation, in a statement.

“We are not out of the woods by any stretch, but we will continue working around the clock to further restore service where we can safely do so,” he said.

"It’s not a political environment that’s particularly warm for incumbents, but it looks like Booker has little to be worried about as the campaign season draws to a close."
