Murphy to Lift NJ Transit 50 Seat Limit
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday the 50% capacity limit for New Jersey Transit will be lifted as of 8 a.m. Wednesday.
Murphy said the transit agency was beginning to see capacity reach that level and wanted to be sure people who needed public transit to get to work could use it.
Overall, he said, ridership on rail was still down around 80%.
“By raising the capacity today I don’t want folks to think that we are snapping back to business as usual,” Murphy said.
