JERSEY CITY, NJ — Jersey City Mayor Jerramiah Healy and NJ TRANSIT have announced two additional forums that will provide residents with opportunities to offer suggestions and comments about bus service in Jersey City.

The upcoming open houses will follow the same format as the first one held in September. Participants will be interviewed individually about the community’s bus service needs and any issues with existing bus service. The information collected will be reviewed by the study team and included in recommendations concerning current bus service in Jersey City. There will be no formal presentation.

The open houses will be held:

· 10 a.m.-noon Saturday, November 8, 2008 at Hepburn Hall, Room H-202, New Jersey City University. Hepburn Hall is located on Kennedy Boulevard between Fisk Street and Audubon Avenue.

· 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, November 13, 2008 at Mary McLeod Bethune Center, 140 Martin Luther King Drive (between Dwight Street and Fulton Avenue).

Residents may also share comments about their bus service needs by calling the Mayor’s Action Bureau at 201-547-5555.

The Jersey City Bus Study is sponsored by Jersey City, Hudson County, the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority and NJ TRANSIT.
