NJ Transit offers earlier trains, buses Wednesday before Thanksgiving

NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey Transit is offering earlier trains and buses for commuters looking to get a jump on the Thanksgiving holiday.

Trains on Wednesday will begin leaving New York, Newark and Hoboken on a weekday schedule at 1 p.m. There also will be early buses leaving from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and from the Hudson River waterfront.

Extra service is available for passengers traveling to Newark Liberty International Airport. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is typically the busiest day of the year at Newark airport’s rail station, with ridership levels about twice that of a typical weekday.
