“We have heard from our customers that they want bus service in South Jersey to include a stop at the River Line’s Florence Station. I am pleased that we were able to include those requests in this new bus service adjustment," President and CEO Kevin Corbett said. "By extending the service, customers will now have reduced wait times and can get to their final destinations faster.’’
NJ Transit in June celebrated the hiring of its 500th bus driver since Gov. Phil Murphy took office in 2018, which gives the agency 3,313 full-time and 147 part-time bus operators on the road providing more than 150 million customer trips each year.
