Last week, NJ Transit also announced its response to COVID-19: the railroad is enhancing its cleaning efforts to include disinfecting vehicles every 24 hours. Hard surface cleaning and disinfecting typically includes handholds, arm rests, seating areas and restrooms. NJT's enhanced cleaning regimen in stations includes additional disinfecting of frequent customer touch-points, such as ticket vending machines, handrails, door handles. In major stations and terminals, this occurs once every shift.

NJ TRANSIT has a dedicated web page,, offering information about the initiatives it has undertaken to protect customers and employees against the coronavirus.
