    Walk up to the ticket machine. Use the handy dandy computer screen buy a ticket(s). Take the ticket and look for a small green box with a slot in it stick the ticket in and it will time stamp it and your ready to go.

    You can buy several tickets at one time and time stamp them as you need them.

    :mrgreen:

    And if you decide to freeload, sometime there are cops on the train or by the exits inspecting tickets. If you don’t have a stamped ticket or monthly pass you get a citation for something around $70.

    For those of you who already buy monthly NJTransit bus passes, note that your bus pass serves as a valid ticket on the Light Rail. Which is even easier than buying and validating a ticket.

    That means if I have a months 2 zone pass for the 126 I can use it on the light rail?

    The light rail originally was slated to run up River Street and Sinatra Street and the Hoboken Terminal Station would have been out front by the buses.

    Of course the usual gaggle of Hoboken advocate groups fought that, so now it’s out on the old freight rails being a lot less useful.

    I found it funny this weekend when I was waiting for the light rail at the Newport station and it blasted through the station and forgot to stop. All of a sudden it jammed on the breaks about 100 feet past the station, and the driver had to run to the back of the train and back up to the station. Everyone was like WTF?!

    NO!

    Pay like everyone else and don’t be a deadbeat.

    I think it is pretty useful on the back end of town, I think alot more people will use it back there and it will help revitalize the area. It would be great if the terminal was by the buses but it still is fine where it is.

    Well I’m not a lazy ass like some other people that take it to the 2nd street!

    From njtransit.com:

    “Bus monthly passes printed with 2 zones or greater may be used for travel on HBLR.”

    If you want to call someone a deadbeat for getting the most out of their monthly bus pass, well, I guess you’re entitled to your opinion, but NJ Transit obviously doesn’t mind if you do.
