Its low on ridership because they cut the buses...When Layfayette& Greenville operated both the local-Newport-Todays #4 and #3 todays #6 they ran them quite frequently...Especially the local...only way see them doing that they have the 81 serve both newport and exchange place....Whats gonna serve newport from ocean ave if they do that

Doesn't this reek of how Red & Tan in Hudson County ran the route?

Sure does..:lol:..I think greenviile should take this route either make an 81N or simply have the current 81 serve both newport and ex place...Just my opinion

Maybe NJT will pick up the #4. They did the #6 and the #10.

They should...Or give it to Acadamy 22 hillside...That's not a low ridership line...Coach Usa and AC corp made it a low ridership line with the reduced service they started to provide once the take over....Most ppl including myself dont use it anymore cause of the waiting times...

Or it could be that A&C Bus is short on drivers or a bit cash strapped? *shrugs*

I don't see NJT picking up the #4 as a standalone route.... I'm not so certain that they'll fuse it into some current service either....

I will admit though that bus service to/around Newport Mall sucks.....

Well njt did take over the standalone #3 route...lol...But if they go by that logic then ocean av/pacific st will be left without any bus service.....which is surrounded by alot of residential areas not to mention alot of senior citizens

From Greenville Garage and it's the strangest thing. None of the current routes serve Newport Mall. The closest route to Newport Mall they have is the 126 Jersey City - Hamilton Park during rush hour.

The only NJ TRANSIT route I can think of that goes into Newport Mall is route 86, but that's from Meadowlands Garage and it serves Union City.

AC Bus Corp has its Montgomery & Westside Route to Newport Mall. Other than that, the Hudson-Bergen Lightrail gets the bulk of the ridership to the mall. It's going suck really bad now because the light rail stations: Westside Ave, MLK Drive and Garfield will be close for year because of pipelines underneath the rails need replacement. Who's going to do bus shuttle service is up in the air. Rush hour will be a drag, need to have service up until 2am. I know Mountgomery & Westside route will be slammed crush loads to the Mall while the 80 and 87 perhaps as well if people want to take Path from Journal Sq. to the mall or 80 to Exchange Place. Those extra buses from the 4 line would come in handy to help the M&W route

That's when the politicians like the major of Jersey City and Council comes in. People should complain and let there voice heard. That happened with the 10 line I think

Lol.... I wasn't remotely implicating that NJT isn't susceptible to taking over any routes.....

That said, I think what you brought up earlier (an #81N or whatever) would happen before they take over the #4... Well, as is anyway.

If they do end up taking the thing over, they're going to be frugal as shit about it - and (as always) the riders are going to feel the effects of it.

Rally cries.... Isn't that how they got the #119 also?
