NJ TRANSIT Expands Weekday Bus Service to More M&E Stations for Enhanced Travel Options to PABT - Beginning Thursday, August 3, 2017
July 28, 2017


New AM peak period buses will operate from Morristown and Madison stations; Express buses added in Summit and Maplewood

Beginning Thursday, August 3, NJ TRANSIT will enhance alternate bus travel options along the Morris & Essex Lines (M&E) with the addition of AM peak-period express bus service from Morristown and Madison stations to the Port Authority Bus Terminal (PABT) during the ongoing Amtrak track repair work at Penn Station New York this summer. This express bus service to PABT will operate between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. with trips departing every 30 minutes. 

Please Note: This is an AM service inbound to New York only.  Customers returning from New York in the PM should travel to Hoboken via PATH or NY Waterway ferry for westbound M&E trains or board a regularly scheduled Coach USA Bus Route No. 77 from PABT to Morristown.

For Summit and Maplewood customers, two express bus trips are being added at each station departing at 6:45, 7:00, 7:40, 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00 a.m.

The 6:00 a.m. trip from South Orange and the 6:00, 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. trips from Newark Broad Street will be discontinued due to low ridership beginning August 3rd.
