CHATHAM, NJ - The tickets are now viewed as collector items, but also serve as a symbol of preparedness by the Borough of Chatham.

Chatham Borough didn't wait for the threatened NJ Transit strike to happen before it acted. The borough put a plan in place to transport Chatham commuters to their jobs in New York by bus, should there be a strike, and had bus tickets printed for purchase.

The tickets were non-refundable and did not guarantee entry into New York.

The strike was averted by an agreement reached before the deadline set by the NJ Transit employees. But Chatham was ready in case the talks broke down.
