PUBLIC TRANSIT FOR SENIORS & DISABLED PERSONS
Many NJ TRANSIT buses are lift-equipped and are marked on the schedule with a “W.” Some routes require a reservation for a lift-equipped bus, which would allow a person using a mobility device to board. Call 1-973-275-5555 (same number for TTY) for a reservation.
NJ TRANSIT’s Reduced Fare Program is for passengers with disabilities and senior citizens ages 62 and older. An application must be completed.
NJ TRANSIT’s Access Link is for people whose disability prevents them from using existing local bus service. For information on how to apply for Access Link call 1-800-955-2321, TTY 1-800-955-6765 and an informational packet will be sent to you. To determine eligibility, an interview will be set up and an application filled out. If you are eligible to ride Access Link, you will receive an I.D. number. Those using Access Link must be within 3/4 of a mile of a regular bus route and follow the same hours.
The PATCO Speedline offers reduced fares for senior citizens (65 and older) and persons with disabilities (no age specified). The reduced fare is available during the off-peak hours of 9AM-4PM and 7PM to 6AM, Monday through Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
