Full Suspension Along NJ Transit Lines Begins Sunday, 4 p.m.

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Chris Christie's Administration on Sunday announced NJ Transit service would undergo gradual system-wide shutdowns of all bus, rail, light rail and Access Link service beginning at 4 p.m.

In addition, the state says the Atlantic City Rail Line will suspend operations at 4 p.m. due to the storm.

NJ Transit says Train 4678 will be the last train to leave Atlantic City.

"NJ Transit's top priority is, has been and will continue to be the safety of our customers, our employees and the citizens of the Garden State," NJ Transit Board Chairman and New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner James Simpson said in a statement.

"This prudent and necessary action will enable NJ Transit to further support our state's response to Hurricane Sandy, freeing up resources that may be needed to further facilitate hurricane relief."

According to NJ Transit, the suspension will take 12 hours to complete.
