NJ Transit buses to resume in Camden

Commuters walk from a River Line train in the early morning Wednesday, April 2, 2008, in Trenton, N.J. It may be high fuel prices, a new ticketing system that makes it tougher to jump turnstiles or some other reason, but ridership has increased on the River Line and Patco, two commuter train lines that serve southern New Jersey. New Jersey Transit says weekday ridership on the River Line between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 ? the most recent period with complete tallies ? was up nearly 5 percent from the same period a year earlier. Even with weekend riders included, it was up 3 percent for the four-year-old system between Camden and Trenton. (AP Photo/Mel Evans)

New Jersey Transit is planning to resume bus service in Camden.

The transit agency has been closed since superstorm Sandy started bearing down on the state. The rest of the system will remain closed until further notice.

But Gov. Chris Christie announced Tuesday that bus service would resume in Camden on Wednesday, but running on a more limited Saturday schedule.

The Delaware River Port Authority also began running its PATCO trains between southern New Jersey and Philadelphia on a limited schedule Tuesday evening.

PATH trains between northern New Jersey and Manhattan remained suspended.
