NJ Transit to Hold Hearings on Bus Cuts

Bus riders want New Jersey Transit to scrap plans to eliminate five routes and cut service on six others.

They made their pleas during a public hearing held Tuesday by the agency, which says the planned changes will save more than $3 million a year.

The proposal calls for discontinuing routes in Newark, Jersey City, Butler, Secaucus and Bloomfield. NJ Transit says those routes and the six routes where reduced service is proposed either suffer from low ridership or compete with train or light rail services.

The agency plans to spend more than $1 million in savings to create around the clock service between Newark, Newark Liberty International Airport and the Elizabeth Corridor.

Newark-Hillside Cross-town buses would be extended to the Branch Brook Park Newark Light Rail Station.
