The NJ Rail app was created to provide you with real time departure information for NJ Transit Rail stations. Information the app provides includes: Destination, Departure Time (time the train is scheduled to depart the station), Train Number, Track Number, Train Line/Route Name, Status (countdown to train arrival/departure starting at 30 minutes)
If you want to find out whether a train is an express or a local? Simply tap on the departure information and you'll see all upcoming station stops, including estimated arrival times. The arrival times are automatically adjusted to reflect any delays the train has experienced en route.
* A network (Internet) connection is required for this application to work.
Q: Is the NJ Rail app a substitute for NJ Transit Alerts?
A: No. We encourage all customers to sign up for alerts and advisories through NJ Transit. While the NJ Rail app does a good job of telling you the train's status, it cannot explain incidents or provide travel advice.
Q: Sometimes there are slight differences between the NJ Rail app and the departure board in my station. Which is more accurate?
A: Although the NJ Rail app is updated several times a minute, during major service disruptions, the app may have difficulty getting accurate data from NJ Transit. In the event of a difference between the NJ Rail app and your station's departure board, you should consider the in-station information to be more accurate.
Train status information is relayed to EasyTransit from NJ Transit. While every effort has been made to ensure that train status information is as reliable as possible, we cannot guarantee accuracy. EasyTransit is not responsible for the inconvenience, expense or damage resulting from errors, cancelled or delayed trains, or failure to make connections. Customers are encouraged to listen to station announcements for additional information.
Ratings and Reviews
Muy buen servicio.
Siempre dan muy buen servicio.
I use this app for the track postings in Hoboken and reported delays when I’m en route. Works pretty well. My only gripe (and it’s a big one) is my station (Harriman) never shows any departures.
Great app! Not working right now tho
NJ Transit has a service called "Departure Vision" that lets you see all the trains arriving at a station and then look at the stops each train is scheduled to make. It's very nice but annoying to have to navigate the browser whenever I want to use it.
This app provides a very nice interface to that service by using location data and letting you save favorites. Easily worth the price for the times it's saved my commute.
But now it no longer works. I would love it if the devs fixed it and I could change this review to 5 stars
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
