TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Some NJ Transit employees can ride to work for free again.

Non-union employees lost the free passes in 2013 as part of a move to reduce costs.

A spokeswoman tells NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1HGCrp7 ) employees will now be able to use their identification cards to travel. In return, the transit system will get a larger network of employees who have received training to detect terrorism.

Management employees have received transit police training on security responsibilities.

The policy was implemented due to the heightened state of alert in the metropolitan region following the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris. The measure is temporary but will be implemented for the foreseeable future.
