Gov. Murphy's NJT Bus Plan; Lincoln Tunnel Summer of Hell coming?

Recommended Posts


Bus route details: http://nj1015.com/nj-transit-adding-bus-drivers-with-summer-from-purgatory-ahead/


The addition of 40 bus drivers, in part to help address overcrowding on seven bus routes through Bergen, Hudson and Union counties: routes 113, 114, 123, 126, 156, 158 and 159. Two of the routes extend into Middlesex and Somerset counties.

On-time performance to be improved specifically on eight routes – the 81, 83, 84 and 190 in North Jersey, the 603 and 606 in the Trenton/Hamilton area and the 410 from Bridgeton and 412 from Glassboro into Philadelphia.


High on that list of headaches is the start this summer of rebuilding the Route 495 viaduct near the Lincoln Tunnel, taking out one lane of service in each direction.

The express bus lane will remain open, and more buses will be added on some routes “to take that burden,” Corbett said. “But it’s going to be a tough summer.”

“Last summer was the summer from hell,” Murphy said. “Is this going to be the summer from purgatory I hope, at least?”
