Does anyone ever used an off peak hour tickets during regular hours? I’m looking to go out of town & my train is scheduled at 10am (which basically is not off peak hours)

I thought NJT did away with peak pricing?

NJ Transit got rid of off peak pricing years ago.

Use the NJtransit app on your phone? Always fine and if you don’t use the ticket, it doesn’t expire.

From what I remember, they just upcharge you while you’re on the train

That's only if you don't purchase a ticket prior to boarding and the conductor asking for your ticket. Obviously if you tried to buy a ticket at a station's ticket vending machines and they weren't working, they'd waive the fee.

That’s how metro north does it, does jersey transit just kick you off?

Nj Transit has the same policy. It's printed in their timetables.

Off peak tickets are weekends and weekdays not between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m

They still exist but only for specific routes and must be purchased round trip.
