    What to Know

    • NJ Transit is rolling out bus fare scanners on select routes out of Morris Garage.

    • Starting Thursday, passengers will use a new onboard ticket validation system which scans bar codes on NJ Transit paper and mobile tickets.

    • “This is a very exciting development for bus customers,” NJ Transit Executive Director Kevin Corbett said.

    New technology is greeting passengers on select New Jersey Transit bus routes.

    Starting Thursday, passengers will use a new onboard ticket validation system which scans bar codes on NJ Transit paper and mobile tickets. Passengers can scan the bar code on paper or mobile tickets or passes when boarding.

    Executive director Kevin Corbett says it sets the stage for the future use of new fare cards and opens the door for contactless payments through credit and debit cards.

    “We anticipate this technology will set the stage for the future use of new fare cards as well as open contactless payments through credit and debit cards giving our customers more flexibility and convenience when paying exact fares,” Corbett said. “This is a very exciting development for bus customers.”

    The pilot program is available on NJ Transit bus route numbers 871, 872, 873, 874, 875 and 880, which operate out of the Morris Garage.
