NJ TRANSIT BUS SERVICE ADJUSTMENTS IN TRENTON DUE TO UPCOMING BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION

NEWARK, NJ -- At the request of the County of Mercer, NJ TRANSIT bus service near the South Clinton Avenue Bridge and the Trenton Transit Center will have slight adjustments to bus routes and/or stops as a result of rehabilitation work on South Clinton Avenue. These changes will take place on August 21, 2018 and remain in place through the approximately seven months of construction.

All NJ TRANSIT bus service will be detoured around South Clinton Avenue between Barlow Street and Greenwood Avenue to ensure customer safety and minimize the impact on customers during the project. Impacted routes are as follows:

  • The current west bus stop on South Clinton Avenue at Barlow Street will be deactivated. Routes 601, 606, 609, and 619 servicing this stop will operate via the South bus stop on Raul Wallenberg Avenue in front of the Trenton Transit Center.
  • The current east bus stop on South Clinton Avenue at Raul Wallenberg Avenue on the side of the Trenton Transit Center will be deactivated. Routes 600, 601, 606, 609, and 619 servicing this stop will operate via the North bus stop on Raul Wallenberg Avenue across from the Trenton Transit Center.
  • Route 418 will have a slight adjustment to its route to bypass the South Clinton Avenue Bridge, but no bus stops along Route 418 will be impacted.

 

The trip destination signs displayed on the front of the bus will not be affected.

Fares and the frequency of service will not change.

As part of NJ TRANSIT’s commitment to safety, pedestrians who previously walked across the South Clinton Avenue Bridge will be able to use the Trenton Transit Center to cross between Walnut Avenue and Raul Wallenberg Avenue as an alternate route.
