NJ Transit buses resume normal service into Manhattan

December 11, 2017

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Transit buses have resumed normal service into New York City after the Port Authority Bus Terminal reopened following a “terror-related” subway pipe-bombing.

NJ Transit on Monday diverted buses to Newark, Secaucus and Hoboken. From there, passengers could take trains or PATH into the city.

NJ Transit says its trains will continue to cross-honor bus tickets all day. Ferries will accept bus tickets until 8 p.m.

PATH is no longer cross-honoring.

A 27-year-old man had a crude pipe bomb strapped to him and it went off in a passageway from Seventh and Eighth Avenues near Times Square.

Three people suffered minor life-threatening injuries. The suspect was also injured and was taken into custody.
