The New Jersey Turnpike Authority predicts 1.6 million vehicles will travel the Garden State Parkway Thursday and 1.5 million on Friday.

The Port Authority says it will have a full complement of toll collectors at its bridges and tunnels.

AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of gasoline in New Jersey is $3.63, up more than $1 a gallon over last year.

NJ Transit will offer early getaway bus and rail service starting at 1 p.m. Friday. More than one million passenger trips were taken during the three-day holiday last year.

A shuttle will link train stations with beaches and shopping areas in Asbury Park, Ocean Grove, Bradley Beach and Belmar for $1 a ride beginning Friday.
