TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — New Jersey Transit has a new tool for passengers concerned about overcrowding because of COVID-19. The agency unveiled a new feature on its app that tracks how full trains and buses are in real-time.

Red, yellow and green icons tell users if ridership is heavy, medium or light.
