NJ Transit to supplement coach express service

Posted on February 9, 2010

On Monday, NJ Transit announced that it will begin serving additional neighborhoods in a section of Lyndhurst starting Feb. 10, to provide residents with interstate and local travel options during times that DeCamp Bus Lines express service does not operate. 

 

DeCamp Bus Lines agreed to allow NJ Transit buses to pick up and discharge passengers in their service area to fill gaps in DeCamp’s No. 32 line service and worked with NJ Transit on a new agreement to revise the “no-stop zone” on a six-month trial basis. The agreement provides additional bus service for Lyndhurst residents at no additional cost to NJ Transit.

 

Under the old agreement with DeCamp, NJ Transit’s No. 192 Clifton-New York buses operate through DeCamp’s exclusive operating territory along a small portion of the route in Nutley and Lyndhurst, but are prohibited from accepting passengers in the area between River Road at White Terrace in Nutley and Park Avenue at the railroad overpass in Lyndhurst. 

 

“Working together with NJ Transit, we have developed a solution that will provide Lyndhurst residents with access to robust public transportation options during times when our express buses are not operating,” said DeCamp Vice President of Operations Gary Pard.
