(New York, NY) -- SantaCon is returning this weekend but don't think about drinking aboard Metro-North, NJ Transit, or the Long Island Railroad. NJ Transit has banned all beverages on its trains, light rails and buses from Saturday until Sunday morning. The ban was implemented after past rowdy incidents during past SantaCons.
During SantaCon thousands of revelers dress in Santa suits as they move from bar to bar. That is why Metro-North and the LIRR are imposing a 24-hour ban on alcohol starting Saturday at noon, it is an effort to maintain safe travel during the event.
