New Jersey Transit will resume service on its River Line from Camden to Trenton at 5 p.m.

Trains will run every 30 minutes between the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden and the Trenton Transit Center until 7 p.m. The frequency will then increase to every 15 minutes to accommodate people returning from the papal Mass in Philadelphia.

When service is restored, papal tickets and all other valid tickets will be accepted, including My Tix and Family Supersaver tickets.

NJ Transit says it’s able to resume service early due to light ridership on exclusive papal trains, which have been operating since Saturday morning.

It also ensures all River Line equipment will be in proper position for Monday morning, when full service resumes between Trenton and Entertainment Center Station in Camden.
