NJ TRANSIT EXTENDS BUS SERVICE TO NEW YORK
Commuter Parking Now Available at Victoria’s Mountain Inn
Beginning April 5th, bus service will be extended on NJ TRANSIT’s No. 194 Newfoundland–New York line into the Stockholm section of Hardyston Township in Sussex County. The extended service will serve the State Department of Transportation’s new park/ride at Victoria’s Mountain Inn on Route 23 at County Route 515.
“Parking is a critical element of our commitment to Governor James E. McGreevey to add much needed parking spaces for customers,” said NJ TRANSIT Executive Director George D. Warrington. “By working in partnership with communities, we can create more parking opportunities throughout the State’s transportation system. Parking initiatives will not only help meet future ridership growth, but can play a role in reducing traffic congestion and improve the quality of life for New Jersey residents.”
NJ TRANSIT and NJDOT has partnered with Victoria’s Mountain Inn to secure approximately 30 spaces at its south parking lot located at Route 23 at County Route 515. Parking will be free to NJ TRANSIT customers who are boarding the No. 194 service to New York. The extension of bus service continues NJ TRANSIT’s commitment to enhance overall service for commuters.
