September 3, 2009
NJT-09-093

NEWARK, NJ — New NJ TRANSIT bus schedules will take effect on many routes September 5, 2009.

 

Among the highlights: 

  • A service adjustment on the No. 403 line in South Jersey will benefit customers with improved on-time performance.  The 403 bus will no longer operate into Philadelphia to avoid traffic-related delays, and has been renamed the Turnersville-Lindenwold-Camden line.  Trips will begin and end at the Walter Rand Transportation Center in Camden, with connecting service on any of 11 NJ TRANSIT bus lines serving Philadelphia at no additional charge.
  • A service change recently announced by NJ TRANSIT on the 408 Millville-Philadelphia line will increase service in Millville by merging two branches of the line in that Cumberland County community. The line also will provide new service along Orange Street through the Millville Industrial Park.
  • Other adjustments will be made throughout the system to increase capacity on high passenger-volume lines and to improve reliability. 

Customers are encouraged to review new timetables available on their buses, at
NJ TRANSIT customer service offices at major terminals or online at
