It’s never too early to plan ahead, especially with a potential NJ Transit rail shutdown beginning this Sunday across New Jersey.
To help ease traffic and #KeepNJMoving, we’re working closely with transportation agencies across New Jersey. We’ve identified areas where we expect to see high demand, such as the PATH stations, Newark Airport, and the ferry terminals, to help ensure that we can move New Jerseyans as quickly and easily as possible.
We’re also encouraging riders to share their rides by using the Fare Split feature in the app to split the cost of the fare with others in the car. By planning ahead and coordinating rides with neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family before the strike, riders can turn every ride into a shared ride and minimize traffic.
How to fare split
- Request a ride
- Tap the bar at the bottom of the screen once your driver has been assigned to you
- Select the Fare Split option
- Invite others to split the fare
Strike details and pro tips
- The strike is set to begin at 12:01am on Sunday, March 13 if a mutual agreement isn’t reached
- Demand will be busiest during morning (6-10am) and evening (4-8pm) rush hours so travel earlier or later to beat the crowds
- If you commute into New York City, use transit hubs such as the ferry terminals or PATH trains from New Jersey rather than crossing a bridge or tunnel in a private vehicle

A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
