NEWARK, NJ, January 18, 2002 -- NJ TRANSIT and East Brunswick have established 27 new bus stops in the township. The joint effort has designated new locations with bus stop signs and route identifiers.
The bus routes in the township benefiting from the new stops are NJ TRANSIT's 68 East Brunswick-Jersey City-Weehawken, 134 Browntown-New York, 138 East Brunswick-New York, Academy Express 811 New Brunswick-South River route, Academy Express 818 New Brunswick-Old Bridge route and Suburban's East Brunswick-New York route.
The new bus stops will be located on Civic Center Drive, New Brunswick Avenue, Old Bridge Turnpike, Racetrack Road, Rues Lane and Ryders Lane.
