NEWARK, NJ, January 18, 2002 -- NJ TRANSIT and Monroe have established 16 new bus stops in the township. The joint effort will designate locations with bus stop signs and route identifiers.
The bus routes in the township benefiting from the new stops are NJ TRANSIT's 138 East Brunswick-New York, 139 Lakewood-Old Bridge-New York and Suburban's Princeton-Heightstown-New York route.
The new bus stops will be located on Applegarth Road, Spotswood-Englishtown Road and Union Valley-Half Acre Road. NJ TRANSIT will be installing bus stop signs and route identifiers that will provide passengers with information on their bus route numbers and destinations. The new signs will be mounted on poles that lie within ten feet of the bus stop.
The bus stops reflect a bus stop ordinance adopted by the Township of Monroe and are part of a large-scale Statewide project by NJ TRANSIT. The effort will begin on or about January 22 and will be completed on or about January 29.
NJ TRANSIT is the nation's largest statewide public transportation system, providing bus, rail and light rail services for 380,600 daily commuters on 240 bus routes, two light rail lines and 12 commuter rail lines. It is the third largest transit system in the country with 163 rail stations, 26 light rail stations and more than 17,000 bus stops linking major points in New Jersey, New York and Philadelphia.
