Hudson Bergen Light Rail

The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail line links communities throughout Hudson County. From the south, connects Bayonne with PATH services at Exchange Place, continues north through Hoboken, terminating in North Bergen. Future expansion of the light rail is uncertain.

The light rail connects with PATH services at Exchange Place, Pavonia-Newport, and Hoboken, and connects with ferries at Essex Street, Hoboken, Lincoln Harbor, and Port Imperial. The PATH and ferry systems operate independently from the light rail and separate fares are required.

Tickets and Fares

The light rail uses a time stamp system where one time fare tickets are stamped with a date and time by a time validator. Tickets are then valid for 90 minutes and inspectors may check for tickets at random intervals, or sometimes not at all. Failure to show a valid ticket can result in a $100 fine.

Monthly passes are also available as well as monthly parking, and joint NY Waterway passes. Parking is only avalaible at certain stations

Tickets for the light rail system may be purchased from automated vending machines available at most platforms. Tickets must be validated before boarding the trams or certain platforms. To validate a ticket, insert the ticket print side up with the New Jersey Transit logo facing left into a validator machine. Once stamped, the ticket is valid for 90 minutes.


There are three routes provided; Tonnelle Avenue to Hoboken, Tonnelle Avenue to Westside Avenue (Jersey City), and Hoboken to Bayonne.

Visit the Official NJTransit Map (PDF) for a precise look at where the trains go, or visit New York's Sixth's Transit Overlay Map for a comprehensive look at how the light rail connects with other forms of rail transportation.


During the week, the Light rail runs every ten minutes during rush hour and every fifteen minutes during off-peak hours. Between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m., service is every 20 minutes. Between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m., ther is no service. Weekend and Holiday service is every fifteen to twenty minutes.
