Most of us who use public transit are accustomed to unusual sights: street performers, lost tourists with enormous luggage, and so on. But earlier this week, NJ Transit riders saw a four-legged passenger who most certainly was on his own. The lost dog that took a solo trip from Mountain Station in South Orange to Hoboken Terminal on February 1st has been reunited with its owner as of Sunday, February 4th. Read on for updates about the dog spotted on NJ Transit that is now reunited with its owner.

What We Know
The white pup that took a solo commute from South Orange to Hoboken Terminal was reunited with its owner on Sunday, February 4th, per an X post from NJ Transit police. On the day of the incident, the dog followed a morning commuter, who was not his owner. The event occurred on Thursday, February 1st at 7:50AM at the Mountain Station in South Orange, located in upper South Orange near the Morris and Essex Line of New Jersey Transit. The dog was later rescued by New Jersey Transit police and was sent to the Jersey City Animal Shelter until reunited with its owner four days later.
