N.J. Transit to sell day-of tickets for papal visit

Riders taking New Jersey Transit on Saturday or Sunday can now wait until the weekend to buy their tickets.

The transit agency will be operating with limited service on the Atlantic City Rail Line and River Line. Previously, anyone wanting to take those lines on Saturday or Sunday needed to buy their tickets in advance.

N.J. Transit said Friday that it was expanding sale of the special papal tickets into the weekend.

The special tickets ($5 roundtrip for River Line, $30 roundtrip for Atlantic City trains) are required for Saturday and Sunday travel; regular tickets and passes won't be accepted.

Tickets can be purchased online or at select stations.
