In an effort to Go Green and to reduce ozone pollution that often accompanies the hot and hazy days of summer, NJ Transit and University Human Resources have partnered to offer the OzonePass Program. OzonePasses are special discounted tickets that allow you to “try transit” instead of driving when high levels of ground-level ozone pollution are predicted. Employees can use OzonePasses to commute to and from work on any NJ Transit bus, train, or light rail system at a special discounted fare. OzonePass tickets are not valid for travel to New York or Philadelphia and cannot be used on Metro North trains.

OzonePasses are $1.60 one-way ($3.20 round-trip), cash only, and can be used on designated Ozone Action Days or Health Watch Days through September 9, 2016. Employees participating in the program should monitor the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJ DEP) air quality website to determine if the day has been designated an Ozone Action or Health Watch Day.

OzonePasses can be purchased at the Cashier’s Office in Records Hall, College Avenue Campus. Unused passes may be returned on or before August 26, 2016, to University Human Resources for a refund. For more information about the program and information about purchasing tickets, please contact Benefits or call (848) 932-3990.
