The Christie Administration announced that today that NJ Transit will implement a gradual system-wide shutdown of all bus, rail, light rail and Access Link service, starting at 4:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon and continuing through 2:00 a.m. on Monday morning.

The Atlantic City Rail Line will suspend operations effective at 4:00 p.m. due to the rapidly declining weather conditions within the region and the continued evacuation of Atlantic City.

Train 4678 will be the last train leaving Atlantic City this afternoon.  This train will leave Atlantic City at 2:43 p.m. and will arrive in Philadelphia at 4:19 p.m.   Train 4679 will be the last train leaving Philadelphia on the Atlantic City Rail Line.  This train will depart Philadelphia at 2:39 p.m. and terminate in Absecon at 4:00 p.m.

“NJ Transit’s top priority is, has been and will continue to be the safety of our customers, our employees and the citizens of the Garden State”, said NJ Transit Board Chairman and New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner James Simpson.  “This prudent and necessary action will enable NJ Transit to further support our state’s response to Hurricane Sandy; freeing up resources that may be needed to further facilitate hurricane relief.”

NJ Transit customers should begin to prepare for the possible, sustained interruption of service” said NJ Transit Executive Director James Weinstein. “This is a dangerous and destructive Hurricane with the potential to cause large-scale power losses, wind damage and both coastal and river flooding – all of which will impact NJ Transit service during and after the storm”

SEPTA will end operations with the end of the service day early Monday at 12:30AM. The service suspension covers all modes of SEPTA travel, including Regional Rail, the Market-Frankford Line, the Broad Street Line, city and suburban bus and trolley routes, and the Norristown High Speed Line.

PATH will suspend operations at 12:01AM Monday morning. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo earlier announced that New York City subways will suspend operation as of 7PM Sunday night.
