In order to accelerate the installation of Positive Train Control (PTC) equipment on locomotives, cab control
cars, and railroad rights-of-way, NJ TRANSIT will implement a final set of schedule adjustments, to go into
effect on Sunday, October 14th, 2018, and will last until this phase of PTC implementation is completed, in
NJ TRANSIT regrets having to make these temporary schedule adjustments. Unfortunately, they are necessary
in order to meet the federally-mandated end-of-year PTC equipment installation deadline. We recognize these
schedule adjustments impact our customers’ lives, and, to proactively address the impacts, NJ TRANSIT will
offer a 10-percent discount on all NJ TRANSIT rail tickets and passes for travel in November, December and
January, while the mandated hardware installation is completed.
The specific details are provided in the attached press release.
