Posted on November 15, 2010

In July 2011, First Transit will begin operating New Brunswick, N.J.-based Rutgers University’s Campus Bus Service, providing students with efficient and reliable transportation in and around the campus.


The university’s Campus Bus Service is the second largest operating bus system in New Jersey, transporting more than six million passengers annually and providing more than 70,000 passenger trips per day. The contract includes First Transit’s management of 70 employees and the operation of 50 transit buses, which will utilize bio-diesel fuel and Green Roads technology in an effort to reduce emissions and petroleum consumption.


“We are pleased to serve the students and staff of Rutgers University,” said Brad Thomas, president, First Transit and First Services. “At First Transit, our focus is on providing safe, cost-efficient and reliable transportation services, and we look forward to a successful relationship with the university.”


First Transit is the largest provider of university transportation services, operating in 20 colleges and universities throughout North America. The company provides complete operations and transit management services as well as comprehensive preventative maintenance and inspection programs to meet customer transportation and budgetary needs.
