Bus Route No. 86: NJ TRANSIT Enhances Bus Route No. 86 to Serve Area Residents in Jersey City - Effective Saturday, March 2, 2019
February 26, 2019

Beginning Saturday, March 2, NJ TRANSIT will make modifications to its No. 86 bus route in Jersey City to provide continued bus service to area residents, including the Lafayette Senior Living Center, following the termination of A&C Bus Route No. 4.  The new and enhanced route for the No. 86 will result in continued one-seat rides for residents of the senior center to necessities such as the nearby Shop-Rite supermarket.

NJ TRANSIT identified efficiencies in the current route to allow this modification to be made using existing equipment and operators.  The new routing, which will include the senior complex on Pacific Avenue, will operate hourly seven days a week and will maintain all of the current No. 86’s bus stops.  The new route will also provide No. 86 customers with a stop near the Jersey City Medical Center.
