NOTE: The Family SuperSaver Fare will NOT be in effect for Bus Route No. 355 customers. All customers must have a ticket to utilize Bus Route No. 355.
Bus Route No. 356 is operating daily express service from Secaucus Junction to American Dream every 30 minutes. NOTE: The Family SuperSaver Fare will be in effect for Bus No. 356 customers.

Additionally, Route No. 772 has expanded and now includes Saturday and Sunday service.
