  1. I never though of the #139/#559 combo. That would have to be a trip I make in the near future. I get the #59 being long (i know, I've looked at that schedule a lot as a child) but still want to see it for myself. I don't know if I can agree on the #1. When it comes to a certain part of jersey city, that is one of the only bus running in that area that can connect to the light rail or path. I get the 6 bus but I think that route should be running more and service extended. The addition of the #86 was good but it only go so far. I do agree, however, of making a new route that could take over and stop at Newark Penn Station. I do have a question. Have you ever been on any of the #400 routes.
  2. I been a huge NJT fan ever since I was a kid. I would collect bus schedules and imagine riding the bus forever (i know, i was a weird child). While there are some lines I want to ride, most of my trips have been in the North part of NJ, and trimming the list wasn't easy. Past bus I miss, #43: I only rode this line one time right before it was discontinue. I remember the workers from the post office were very upset it was going away because it was the only direct transportation from the facility. I always thought the line could have continue if it were adjusted. Also, when it use to enter Journal Square, no one would take it to gates ave because it wasn't the 87 (even though it said Gates Ave on it), so it was a breeze to ride home during rush hour. While the ride was great, those moments always stayed in my mind. 5. #159. I always wanted to ride this line because of the bus type (Neoplan AN459) but the ride was unexpected. I remember getting off at the last stop and wanted to walk around until I realized that I had a class that day and jump back on the bus. While I only rode it full ride one time, the scene was great and the first time I saw the fairview garage. 4.#1. This bus was so long to me as a child. I would get excited to ride until we got to Newark (had to go to Irvington). Now when I look back, I forget about all the connections to other lines and the fact that it split into different parts (which I learn the hard way when I had to go over to visit a family member). I do know that people dislike the fact that it goes to Hudson County Correctional Faculty because people would sign in unison when the bus went there (but I didn't mind). To me. it a line that shows the difference between each Urban cities. 3.#770. I only rode this line one time and it was awesome. I'd actually skip a summer program day just to explore this after I rode the #83 (more on that later). I wanted to visit Hackensack Bus Terminal and after getting off the #83, I said whatever bus leaves now is the one I'll get on. Sure enough, the #770 pulled up. The ride was very quiet but looking at a different ride made it exciting. It was also the first time I've been to Paterson and I remember walking around and watching all the bus fly by. I keep saying I'm going to try it again one day but who knows. 2. #111. This is another line I only took one time, but it was recent and it was what I'd imagine it to be. The driver wasn't nice, but it still didn't dampened my spirit. I took it to Jersey Gardens (first time going there) and the ride was great. I think it was too early because I had to wait almost 90 mins for the one to go to union city/ NY but it was nice. 1.#83. This is my favorite. I know this line so well. But I've only rode it fully from first point to end point twice. It takes me to all the areas I need, walmart, target, light rail, the heights, doctor office, union city, etc. I realize now it's my go to route when I need to get somewhere. When you ride it the rest of the way, it is like a change of culture and way of living. Honorable Mentions: #80 and #87: I take this lines all the time and know them like the back of my hand. Both are great but for a quiet ride to watch the scenery, I'd recommend taking them after morning rush hour and before school kids get out. Routes I want to try in the future: #59 (It was one of the first schedules I collected and given to me by my aunt who passed away a few week later when I was young, so always wanted to try that one). #161 (I don't know, I just like the number, already establish I'm weird). #181(Never been to George Washinginton Bus Terminal and this is the route I would use to get there). #559 (I saw this line when I was on a field trip and want to try it). #600( I don't know, but when I went for a field trip, I saw this line and figured it had to be fun).
  3. I was on the 87 today and noticed the bus was 6293. Are they switching them up?
  4. I was at hoboken terminal yesterday morning and saw the line for the 85 bus to american dream. Long line, as expected. This is only going to get worse.
  5. It true. I rode right pass it yesterday and the front left end was damaged. I asked a driver about it today but she told me that she only just heard of it herself.
  6. Didn't even realize that. I think the ideas are good as far as bus travel, but it can be better. I mean, if there an increase of people trying to get to the mall, will NJT increase service?
  7. I've been telling people in jersey city that it'll be quicker to get the 85. the 2 bus is good but that a long ride.
  8. I know where the 2 goes. Think a little further, it'll be quicker to get the 85 to the mall then the 2 and then transfer for those in Jersey City, people are going to stand at those 5/6 bus stops within jersey city line along the 85 to get there.
  9. I said the same thing for Jersey City/Journal Square. I mean, the 85 extended to the mall is good, but I know it going to be packed to the mall and from the mall. It gets packed when I go to Walmart with the workers and shoppers. Same. I think this is just a test in the water.
  10. Thanks. I should have done that in the first place.
  11. If you look at the updated schedules for 8/31, you'll see the 85, 703, and 772 routes change to go to the mall.
  12. I was by the area the other day and saw 6490, 6492, 6493, and 6494.
  13. Today I saw 6471, 6473, and 6474 for the Bergen Bus. Also, I only saw two RTS running for the Bergen today, and that number going down slowly. So if any of you want to see them before they go, i suggest you do it now.
  14. Saw 6470 for the 440 shopper today at the square
