Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 165 on Monday (July 13), which lifts the 50 percent capacity limits on NJ TRANSIT and private-carrier vehicles due to COVID-19.
This order requires NJ TRANSIT and private-carriers limit vehicles to permit the maximum seated capacity which will go into effect at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 15.
“As we continue on our road back, we are seeing increases in ridership which are quickly approaching 50 percent of the stated capacity of NJ TRANSIT and private-carrier vehicles,” said Governor Murphy in a press statement.“To ensure New Jerseyans can get to and from their jobs and that the system continues operating efficiently, we are allowing our transit providers to resume operations at full seated capacity.”
