February 17, 2016
NEWARK, NJ — Accommodating customer requests to stay connected, NJ TRANSIT has expanded its pilot program where customers can charge their cell phones for free at two additional major NJ TRANSIT hubs.
Charging kiosks are now in place at Hoboken Terminal and Penn Station New York with the capability of charging dozens of cellphones. As part of the pilot, NJ TRANSIT is interested in evaluating customer response to see if the program should be expanded even further in the future.
“The response to the charging kiosk pilot program, which was started in the fall of 2015, has been overwhelmingly positive, with more and more customers telling us how much they enjoy this amenity,’’ said NJ TRANSIT interim Executive Director Dennis J. Martin. “We live in an electronic world and staying connected is critical in our customers’ everyday life.’’
NJ TRANSIT continues to work with goCharge, a leading provider of mobile device charging stations to conferences, events, universities, hospitals, stadium arenas and more. Customers only need their cell phones as goCharge provides a variety of cell phone charging cords, enough to work with virtually every cell phone currently on the market.
