@B35 via Church Pretty much only the ones that stay within one city/town are the one-zone routes (some go slightly over the border to a neighboring area). You can add the 96 (Newark), 452/453 (Camden), 504/505 (Atlantic City), and 601/605/607/608/610/611 (Trenton), 612 (Princeton Junction) to that list.

That much I've figured out; just didn't know how many of them there were...

Thanks for listing the rest of them though.

Some of them, as travel path goes, I intended to be renumbered as branches or variants of existing NJT bus services (eg, Line 400 ---> 138; Sayreville to PABT ---> 131; MW IBOA Society Hill ---> 80S)

the 80S already exist 80 via sip avenue

Yup, but for the purposes of my...scheme, the Society Hill trips would basically be 80S trips with a different southern terminus.

The PDF schedule shows 2 zones but I don't see a fare zone boundary (presumably the Hoboken/JC city line)

The 82 is also one zone.

He's right with the #87.... I'm not sure why it shows 2 zones for.

=========================

While looking at the Doug & Adrienne maps (I wish I could take this project over & update this thing), I found a 6 zone local route btw - The #455 Paulsboro....

My Bus now showing a few oddities in South Jersey at the moment:

408-5330 ( Can understand this with the back door boarding) the 406 and the 412 also had an NABI today. 

 315-5573 ( Strange for a Camden NABI to be doing a Shore points route instead of a Washington Twp NABI)

400-18019 ( If the 408 and 315 are using NABIs this bus shouldn't be used on the 400 if other MCI routes have been using  NABIs due to the rear door boarding)

I think if it has become that desperate to put MCIs on the 400 ( especially with the pandemic) than NJT should be eliminating trips.  There's still plenty of 400s on the road at this hour.

Newton Av has Washington twos 3/313 for the time being due to operator shortage.

Washington Twp has been throwing all available buses being we are not accepting cash.

Is there an issue with the sign system on the MCI's? The past few weeks none of the signs on the MCI's have been working.

Does anybody know what the schedule is like for any of the private carrier routes operating out of the GWB Bus Terminal?

@DCTransitFilms @davemackey @553 Bridgeton @B35 via Church @Lawrence St do you know?

 

thanks for the help!

GWB has private carriers? Since when?

You trolling us again, or nah?

Surely you didn't think GWB only had NJT buses terminating inside the terminal......

Well are we talking about contracted private operators, or just regular private operators? Honest question.

Lol.... What difference would it make? A contracted private operator is a private operator..... Whether said private operator is operating service for some other entity, or whether said private operator is operating service for themselves. would change absolutely nothing (with respect to what you were asked)......

Regardless of the nature of this question you're asking me here, the only person who can even answer it, is you..... That's what's kinda funny here.... I mean, you vaguely inquire about GWB having private carriers, but expect someone else to answer a follow-up question, consisting of if "we" meant [private operators under contract] or [private operators that aren't (if that's what you mean by "regular private operators")]....

Even if I didn't believe you were trolling with your original question, what transit provider{s} did you believe operated out of GWB Bus Terminal?
