TRENTON (WABC) -- NJ Transit will offer limited special service on its Atlantic City Rail Line and River Line for people attending the World Meeting of Families and Papal visit on Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27.

A limited number of tickets are available on the agency's website.

The service is limited in order to keep crowd numbers consistent with the maximum capacity that will be available.

Both lines will have limited service on those days and you will need a special pass to ride either line. They must be purchased in advance.

No other fares, including monthly passes, Family SuperSaver or cash, will be accepted on the Atlantic City Rail Line or River Line.

Customers traveling to the World Meeting of Families events and Papal event should expect long waits - particularly following the Papal ceremony on Sunday which could have people waiting for several hours.

The last day to purchase the special tickets will be Friday, September 25 at 11:30 p.m., or earlier should they sell out.
