Buses at Newark Broad Street Station
NJ TRANSIT is launching a new initiative that will revitalize bus service in the Greater Newark area – the first effort to restructure the Newark-area local bus network in several decades. NewBus Newark will use a detailed performance analysis of the area’s 38 local bus routes – including an assessment of the current transit market, where people live, where they work and how they travel – as well as community input to design a new intrastate bus network for the Newark region.
The centerpiece of the project is a deep engagement with customers and the community, which includes a customer survey, meetings with regional stakeholders, and an informational web page at www.njtransit.com/newbus, ultimately leading to greater travel flexibility and support of Newark’s economic growth.
Recommendations from NewBus will help to address the Newark area’s evolving regional mobility needs, updated travel patterns, under-performing bus service and the overall customer experience. The new network will also enhance connections to rail and bus service around Northern New Jersey and into New York.
