NJT got some major changes on the way for bus routes in Northern Hudson County, mainly buses that travel via Bergenline Avenue.

Effective Date: August 19, 2008


Beginning Saturday, August 30, new schedules will take effect on many NJ TRANSIT bus routes. Please note the highlighted changes below, which affect buses serving Bergenline Avenue and Park Avenue in northern Hudson County, Palisade Avenue in Jersey City, and Palisade Avenue in Fort Lee and Cliffside Park.

  • Adjusted travel time on most trips.
  • At Bergenline Avenue Station, boarding location for 22X moved to bus lane 1.

  • Bus boarding location will be moved to lane 3 at Bergenline Avenue Station.


Please see timetables for additional schedule information.



The surprising ones for me are:


1. No midday 181 service and the headways will be hourly for the rush.


2. Saturday 156R service! W00 h00! More options for me when I feel like taking a bus from Weehawken on saturdays.


3. Saturday 159 trips from the HBLR Bergenline Avenue station.
