Gov. Chris Christie announced the plans Sunday afternoon. He says the shutdown will start at 4 p.m. Sunday and continue through 2 a.m. Monday.
The service suspension process requires the relocation and securing of buses, rail equipment and other NJ Transit assets away from flood-prone areas. It also requires complete coordination with state and local officials throughout the process.
Administration officials also say the Atlantic City Rail Line will suspend operations at 4 p.m. Sunday due to the rapidly deteriorating weather conditions and the continued evacuation of Atlantic City.
