Middlesex County Passengers Benefit

NEWARK, NJ, April 18, 2002 -- NJ TRANSIT will revise schedules on a number of bus lines in Middlesex County on Monday, April 29 in response to changing travel patterns, as well as customer requests and recommendations. The Corporation regularly reviews its bus routes and makes changes to improve service.

Customers are encouraged to pick up new timetables at major terminals and on their buses and check them carefully to determine if their trip has changed. The changes include the following:

  • There will be minor changes on the No. 811 New Brunswick-South River, No. 814 North Brunswick-New Brunswick-Middlesex County College and No. 818 New Brunswick-Old Bridge routes. Customers should check their timetables carefully.
  • On the No. 810 New Brunswick-Woodbridge Center route, midday service will change from 30-minute frequency to 60-minute frequency to reflect current ridership patterns. Other minor trip times will be adjusted; customers should check their timetables carefully.
  • On the No. 813 Perth Amboy-Middlesex County College route, the Raritan Center-Fed Ex branch will be eliminated due to low ridership. Other minor adjustments will be made; customers should check timetables carefully.
  • On the No. 815 New Brunswick-East Brunswick-Woodbridge Center route, additional running time will be added between Burnet/Tunison and Somerset/George in New Brunswick and additional trips will be added between Perth Amboy and Woodbridge Center to reflect ridership growth and improve on-time performance.
