Travel Hands-Free This Thanksgiving!

No matter where you're headed this Thanksgiving, travel safe and travel smart!Roadways will be bustling at Thanksgiving as travelers head out to share the holiday with family and friends. According to AAA, 90% of travelers drive rather than fly during the holiday. 

This year avoid congestion on the roads and (as always) travel hands-free! Take public transit to family celebrations, gatherings with friends and holiday events. It’s a safe, sane, stress-reducing and hands-free way to travel, especially during peak travel times or inclement weather.

Online resources can help seasoned commuters as well as occasional public transit riders plan their route. Here are some ideas to get you started:

The New Jersey Transit website has bus and train schedules as well as a point-to-point Trip Planner to help you find a specific route, options and schedules.

MyBus provides online access to bus information for more than 19,000 bus stops.

Google Transit makes it easy to plan rides on all NJ TRANSIT rail, bus and light rail lines, as well as PATH and MTA services in New York.

Park & Ride Lots located throughout the state are an ideal place to connect to public transit. Some lots offer free parking while others charge a nominal fee or require a permit. Get information about northwest New Jersey Park & Ride lots on our Map It page or call 973-267-7600.

Happy Thanksgiving from TransOptions.

Travel safely!
