HUDSON COUNTY -- Starting February 16, 2013, NJ TRANSIT will offer free parking on Saturdays and Sundays at all five park/ride locations along the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail system.
“Free parking on Saturdays and Sundays is a great incentive for people to get out of their cars and hop on the light rail and explore,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director James Weinstein. “Customers will save more than just money—with convenient access to the waterfront and trans-Hudson connections, they’ll avoid traffic and save time as well.”
Customers will be able to take advantage of free parking from 12:01 a.m. on Saturdays until the end of the service day on Sundays at the following stations:
• 22nd Street in Bayonne
• 34th Street in Bayonne
• West Side Avenue in Jersey City
• Liberty State Park in Jersey City
• Tonnelle Avenue in North Bergen
NJ TRANSIT is initiating the free Saturday/Sunday parking as a one-year pilot program aimed at encouraging use of the light rail system and increasing weekend ridership.
